Research interests

My research interests lie in the area of migration and literature, issues of multiculturalismm nation building and national identifications. I am currently working on the ambivalent attitude towards the notion of community as expressed in contemporary Dutch literature. I also work on the 'narrative of the nation' in particular in connection with the colonial past and multicultural present. I am an editor for the Journal of Dutch Literature.
