    Research profile

    Marjet Brolsma is Assistant Professor in European Intellectual, Cultural and Literary History at the European Studies department of the University of Amsterdam. She studied Cultural History and Journalism at the University of Groningen and the Humboldt University of Berlin and completed her PhD on ‘”The humanitarian moment”. Dutch intellectuals and the crisis of European civilization (1914-1930)’  at the University of Amsterdam in 2015. She has been involved at the Study Platform on Interlocking Nationalisms (SPIN) as a research assistant and took part in the international research project ‘Getting the Big Picture on Small States. Towards a New Research Agenda for Small State Studies, 1814-present day’ (2017-2021) of the Universities of Aarhus, Iceland and Amsterdam which examined connections between shifting ideas about a state’s (relative) size, national identity discourses, and concrete foreign policy actions. Brolsma is a board member of De Moderne Tijd, which promotes the study of the Low Countries in the era 1780-1940.

    Her research has focused on: intellectuals and the Great War, the concept of cultural transfer, literary internationalism, national identity discourses and ideas of Europe, and the interplay between cultural criticism and political engagement.

     

    Current research projects:

    -In 2021-2022, I am a research fellow at the Dutch Institute of Sound and Vision in the context of the ‘Media War’ digital history project on propaganda in Dutch-language media during the Second World War. My research aims to explore the ways in which ideas of Europe and European unity were used for propaganda purposes in both pro-Allied and pro-Nazi newspapers and radio broadcasts, with a special focus on the interaction between these conflicting propaganda discourses.

    -Antiliberal internationalism (International conference in January 2023)

    -Literary internationalism of European writers and intellectuals in the inter years

     

    Teaching

    I am a co-coordinator of the BA Programme in European Studies/Europese studies and have taught BA courses (in Dutch and English) in the European Studies’ Culture and History majors on a wide range of topics, such as the intellectual history of Modern Europe, cultural criticism and utopian thought, transnational European history, national thought in Europe, European identity, and teaching ‘Europe’ in secondary education. I also supervise BA- and MA-theses in the field of European (cultural) history.
