Our research is part of ASCA, the Amsterdam School of Cultural Analysis, and NICA, the Netherlands Institute of Cultural Analysis. Both institutes focus on the study of contemporary culture from an interdisciplinary, theoretical, and critical perspective. 

Our staff members are especially (though not exclusively) interested in the following subjects:

  • globalization, space, borders, and migration
  • sexuality and gender, queer and trans studies
  • bodies, embodiment, disability, and vulnerability
  • cultural memory, historical trauma, and conspiracy theories
  • precarity and the critique of neoliberalism
  • provincial, rural, and peripheral spaces
  • contemporary arts and politics
  • literature, modern art, and philosophy
  • urban cultures, street life, and new forms of activism
