Your Background

Your Biography

As professor of Political history I am interested in cultural sources for the analysis of political processes, like museumobjects and institutions, monuments, etc. My research focus is on processes of nation and state formation in the context of colonialism and decolonisation. My expertise on in the cultural legacies of the colonial past is based on my previous work as head of the Curatorial department of the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam.
