Qualifications

I hold a BA in Dutch Literature and Theatre Studies from the University of Antwerp (BE) and MA in Modern Literature from the same university.

Research interests

My PhD research is funded by the University of Antwerp and aims to cast new light on the cultivated image of Flemish writer Maurice Gilliams (1900-1982) by reading his prose as a critical reflection on the modernization of Flanders in the interwar years and by reconstructing the ways in which Gilliams marketed himself as an aristocrat, aesthete and writer of autonomist prose.

Focus points of my research are the modern city, the countryside, interwar literature, the Flemish Movement, authorial self-fashioning and posture.
