I am Assistant Professor at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, specialized in Media and Cultural Studies, studying the representation of past events, participatory media, multi-platform storytelling, cultural memory and the re-use of archival footage – particularly for television, film and digital media. I organize cooperation for European research and education into television’s history and future as a multi-platform storytelling practice, a.o. as Vice-Chair of the ECREA Television Studies section (www.ecrea.eu). My Digital Humanities experience includes (inter-)national projects on digitalized audio-visual heritage and cultural memory promoting the use of television content to explore Europe’s rich and diverse cultural history (see for instance www.euscreen.eu). I have published in a.o. Media and CommunicationContinuum, Studies in Documentary Film, Rundfunk und Geschichte, Tijdschrift voor Mediageschiedenis (Journal of Media History) and VIEW. In 2016-2017, I worked as a Researcher in Residence (Fellowship) at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, researching audio-visual representations of historical events in the context of DIVE+ and CLARIAH. As Vice-Chair of the Dr. Catherine van Tussenbroek Fund I also support female research talent in Dutch academia.
