Paul Hulsenboom (1990) completed a BA in Greek and Latin Language and Culture at Radboud University, where he subsequently graduated within the Research Master Literary Studies (both cum laude). During his studies, he performed research at Corpus Christi College at the University of Oxford and he was a student-assistant four times. His MA thesis, which was published in several parts, entitled 'The Sarmatian Horace in Antwerp: Three authors praise Sarbiewski' (2013), centered around a number of Neo-Latin laudatory poems from Antwerp, written in honor of the Polish poet Maciej Kazimierz Sarbiewski (1595-1640). His publications mainly concern Dutch-Polish historical cultural relations.
As of November 1st, 2016, Paul Hulsenboom is working on a PhD thesis, supervised by prof. dr. Johan Oosterman and dr. Lotte Jensen. His research revolves around the development of the image of Poland in the Netherlands and vice versa, from 1618 to 1864, as well as on the shaping of Dutch and Polish national identities these images entail. He studies Dutch, Polish and Latin source material, ranging from travel reports to pamphlets and from poems to novels. His corpus furthermore includes translations of texts about the Netherlands and Poland.
Lastly, Paul Hulsenboom translates Polish literary and scholarly literature into Dutch. He has received grants and awards for both his research and his translations.
