Jan Bant (1995) is a PhD candidate at the Department of History, Art History and Classics. He specializes in the past and present of colonialism, the Caribbean and Transatlantic relations. His PhD position is partly situated at the University of Curaçao.

In his PhD, he studies the role of sport for Caribbean communities in the Netherlands and the Caribbean since 1950. In particular, he analyzes how sport has played a role in processes of integration and belonging, as well as in processes of discrimination and exclusion.
