    Lotte is a PhD-candidate in the NWO-VICI project ‘The Invention of the Refugee’, in which studies Christian exiles. She holds a BA in History and in Archaeology and a RMA in History. Her main academic interests include the material culture of early modern exiles, the construction of social identities, refugee protection and charity.

  • Research

     

    As part of the project ‘The Invention of the Refugee’, I will focus on Christian refugees in Early Modern Europe. When and why did the refugee emerge as a socially, culturally and legally distinctive category and concept, and especially what influence did refugees themselves have on the emergence of this concept? I will approach this question by studying how refugee protection developed and was organised in Amsterdam, London and Geneva. I will study how exile communities lobbied for asylum, charity and legal rights between the late sixteenth-century to the early eighteenth-century.
