Bart Karstens is postdoctoral research fellow in the NWO sponsored project 'The Flow of Cognitive Goods. Towards a Post-Disciplinary History of Knowledge' (2016-2020). Before entering this project he was postdoctoral researcher in the project ‘Legal Structures’ (2014-2016) in which he worked in close cooperation with Marijn Koolen (Huygens Institute), Giuseppe Dari-Mattiacci (ACLE) en Rens Bod (ILLC). He is a member of the Vossius Center for the History of Humanities and Sciences, managing editor of the journal History of Humanities and executive officer of the Society for the History of Humanities. His areas of specialization include: History and Philosophy of Science, Historiography of Science, History of Linguistics, History of the Humanities, Discipline Formation, Comparativism and conceptualization of the notions of error, structure and structuralism. Students interested in these areas and/or specific topics can approach me for tutorials, thesis projects, etc.
