Sanne Muurling is Assistant Professor of Social History, with an expertise in the dynamics of gender and social inequalities in the lives of ordinary people between 1600 and 1900. Through topics such as crime and mortality she asks how categories such as gender, socio-economic status, single motherhood, migration background, or the place where someone lived determined what opportunities someone had in life.
She studied socioeconomic history at VU Amsterdam and received her PhD in 2019 with research on gender dynamics in crime in early modern Bologna. Her book 'Everyday crime, criminal justice and gender in early modern Bologna' was published by Brill in 2021. Since then, Sanne has been affiliated with the project 'Lifting the burden of disease. The modernization of health in the Netherlands: Amsterdam 1854-1940' and is an editor at TSEG - The Low Countries Journal of Social and Economic History.
Students may contact Sanne for BA or MA theses on the social history of crime and punishment, disease and death, spatial analysis and GIS visualizations, and other aspects of the social history of ordinary or marginalised people, such as consumption, living culture, labour and poverty between c.1600-1900, in Europe or the former colonies.

- 2020 - 2024 - Lifting the burden of disease. The modernisation of health in the Netherlands: Amsterdam 1854-1940 // As the current corona crisis shows, the history of infectious diseases in western societies is far from over. However, we had somehow forgotten about that heavy burden of infectious diseases in the past, how heavy it was, and what it looked and felt like for people living with it. Recently, truly unique data have become available enabling us to contextualise death and disease at the individual level. More information
