I am currently working as an assistant within the Department of Educational Studies of Ghent University, specifically within the Culture & Education research group.

As a Master in Social Work, my main interest lies in the societal and educational functions of culture and the arts. In my master dissertation, I focused on recent cultural policy in Flanders and explored how the function of participation in the arts is differently approached from the perspective of policy and practice, and how there is a need for interconnection and dissensus.

My Phd-research will focus on the changing role of traditional cultural institutions within our current globalised, multicultural and media saturated society.
