Activities per year
I am a linguistic anthropologist interested in education, poverty, (youth) language and issues in gender and sexuality. I have previously worked on narrativity among Barbados school children, social work and poverty in Antwerp, transgenderism and migration trajectories in Ivory Coast and the epistemology of poverty among young refugees. Currently I am active in linguistic (attitudes toward multilingualism in Northern Dutch schools) and theological (new African churches in Tilburg) anthropology. Next to this, I keep a keen interest in early American anthropology (esp. Whorf and Hymes) and was holder of the Daytal L. Kendall Award (2009) of the American Philosophical Society to investigate the early socialist engagement of Dell Hymes.
