About Me

Versatile and engaged

I am Ewout, an energetic young historian and political scientist. I am a keen researcher who likes to untangle complex historical events and their impact on current affairs. I want to fathom past human actions and behaviour, and understand how these actions have shaped and influenced the world around us. Besides being an avid researcher I am an engaged student who contributes not only to the academic community but society at large. I have been part of numerous committees and have been a board member of different associations. My experiences, academic or in working capacity, have made me resourceful, stress resistant and versatile.

History has always fascinated me. Ever since I was little, I devoured history novels and comics. I hope to eventually start a PhD. My interests especially focus on modern history and the influences of politics and ideology on mass society in Europe.

I am a creative person. Not only am I able to think out of the box to solve problems, I am also a creative in other ways. I love to create things for example. Be it with my hands or with a computer I find it fulfilling to design and make something. Like this site!


Integrative research

I am a versatile researcher with a variety of different skills ranging from policy making to research. Since I have read history and political science, I am trained in the research traditions of both humanities and social sciences. I have experience with qualitative and quantitative research, as well as statistical analyses. I am also trained in interpretative research methods and critical source analysis. This combination of academic skills enables me to use an interdisciplinary approach to research. In the past I have for example examined the influence of framing as a sociological concept on memories of war. Besides these academic skills I am experienced in policy processes.
