Adriaan Duiveman’s research project deals with the cultural and social impact of (nature-induced) disasters in the eighteenth-century Dutch Republic. It is part of the larger NWO-Vici project Dealing with disasters in the Netherlands, which focuses on the representations of disasters and their role in the identity formation of towns, regions, and nations. Duiveman is particularly interested in the interaction between social identity and acts of solidarity. Before joining the research project as a PhD researcher, he studied early modern drinking culture and expressions of manhood.
Duiveman studied history at the University of Groningen (Netherlands) and Uppsala University (Sweden). After graduating with distinction from the research master Modern History and International Relations at the University of Groningen in 2016, he worked as a coordinator for the Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG). In 2018, he started as a PhD researcher at Radboud University.
In 2019, he was selected as one of the young Faces of Science of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). The Society of Dutch Literature (MdNL) and the Royal Netherlands Historical Society (KNHG) awarded him the Elise Mathilde Essay Prize in 2021.
