Manager/ Researcher

As manager at the Tilburg Cobbenhagen Center (TCC) at Tilburg University, I'm responsible for the foundation of the center and its further development. The TCC, led by director Prof. Dr. Erik Borgman, seeks to give a new impulse to the debate on values within science from a Christian and Humanistic tradition and seeks out questions and issues surrounding identity that concern society at large. One of these questions concerns the future of commemoration. As the coordinator of the research program 'Re-Member', I work together with my research-team to initiate innovating activities revolving around commemoration and the celebration of freedom in the Netherlands:

  • In cooperation with national and regional commemoration-committees, heritage organizations, and national and regional policy and administrative bodies, Re-Member develops a vision of the future for commemoration in the Netherlands in the form of policy recommendations.
  • In cooperation with representatives from primary and secondary education, Re-Member develops new teaching modules.
  • In cooperation with artists, Re-member designs and develops new spaces for commemoration.
  • In cooperation with journalist and other media-experts, Re-Member raises awareness of these policy-recommendations, teaching modules, new spaces for commemoration and visions of the future amongst a broad public.
  • In cooperation with representatives from academia, Re-Member organizes symposia and debates of which the outcomes are incorporated in the reflection on social and cultural commemorative processes and coinciding products.
