Anne Petterson is Associate Professor at the History Department of Radboud University, where she teaches Political History. Her research is about local, national and political identity formation in the daily lives of (Dutch) citizens in the 19th and 20th century. She combines a ‘history from below’ approach with an interest in urban history and material (political) culture.

She studied History at Leiden University and defended her doctoral dissertation on popular nationalism in nineteenth-century Amsterdam at the same university in 2017. Her dissertation was published as Eigenwijs vaderland (Prometheus; Amsterdam) and was awarded the Dirk Jacob Veegens Prijs of the Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen in 2018.

She has been university lecturer at Leiden University and Utrecht University. From 2016-2018 she was managing editor of the peer reviewed academic journal Tijdschrift voor Geschiedenis. Besides she has been Research Fellow at the Maatschappij der Nederlandse Letterkunde during the academic year 2019-2020. In 2019, together with Prof. Dr. Henk te Velde and Dr. Anne Heyer (Leiden University), she received funding from the Fonds Staatsman Thorbecke (KNAW) for the research project "Redelijkheid omstreden. Debatregels en de toegang tot democratie, 1870-1940" (duration: 2020-2023).
