I am from Amsterdam where I did both my BA (2014) and MA in Early Modern History (2017) at the University of Amsterdam. I was awarded the Prof. J.M. Warnsinck Fellowship 2018 at the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam where I did research on mock naval battles. As a voluntary researcher I participated in the research project ‘Correspondence of Johan de Witt (1625-1672)’ from the Huygens/KNAW Research Institute in the Netherlands.
My doctoral research is a study of the dissemination of English and Irish books on the early modern European book market. I aim to contribute to our knowledge of the international resonance British and Irish authors found throughout Europe. Next to that I would like to explore the ways in which their work was distributed. I am interested in the key actors involved in this process, to examine how agents went about their pursuit and what strategies they had to avoid obstacles such as censorship.
