Nanke is Assistant Professor in Urban Planning. Her work specializes in processes of urban conflict, protest, and in- and exclusion. She is trained in Anthropology and Political Science. Her research and teaching in Urban Planning take an interdisciplinary and ethnographic perspective on planning for inclusive cities. 

 

Her PhD dissertation (Cum Laude) was awarded with the Van Poelje prize of best dissertation in Public Policy 2015. It argues that episodes of urban conflict can serve as a lens into the challenges that society presents to citizens and to those responsible for governance. Struggles around representation, inequality, belonging, and governance are negotiated among citizens, professionals, and policy practitioners at the street-level of urban neighborhoods. Therefore, the interactions between stakeholders in situations of conflict can function as laboratories to understand how citizenship is performed through informal and unconventional street-level practices. The study is the result of four years of ethnographic case study research in which she immersed herself into the dramas of people who inhabit, govern, or practice in the urban environment. The study reveals if, when, how, and where episodes of urban conflict can be understood as moments of opportunity for ‘negotiated democracy’.

 

She is a columnist and a member of the editorial board of 'Beleid en Maatschappij' and 'Tijdschrift voor Sociale Vraagstukken' see: http://www.socialevraagstukken.nl. She previously worked as a Postdoctoral researcher in the Public Mediation Program and thought in Conflict Studies and Identity at the department of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam. During her PhD research she was a visiting scholar at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR) at George Mason University.

 

She keeps a blog about ‘small stories to rethink large issues’
