Slavery, Forced Migration and Family History: Towards a Durable Partnership in Research and Teaching
This project enhances the ambitions of the University of Glasgow and Radboud University Nijmegen to become international players in researching historical slavery and forced migration. Based on the ‘Life after Slavery’ (LaS) partnership in 2019/20, the team of Radboud and Glasgow historians is also taking a role in innovating the teaching of slavery.
The project will result in a range of academic outputs, including joint paper presentations at the European Social Science History Conference and an international workshop at Radboud University, leading to the publication of a special issue of an international peer-reviewed journal. More significantly, the project will lay a foundation for increased collaboration between the Radboud University and the University of Glasgow on writing joint grant proposals and curriculum development, as well as a new international research network.

This research aimed at illuminating the altering constructions of sport lives and, consequently, of sport as a changing cultural ideal during the twentieth century.
This research focused on the intertwining of the discourse on resilience and sport on the one hand and the accompanying educational, medical, national, militaristic, imperialistic and Darwinistic assumptions on the other.
This research focused on the divergent ways in which sports and physical culture functioned as representations of modernity, which individual actors and social groups were claiming to be fit for modernity, and how sports and physical culture could function as new markers for inclusion and exclusion in Dutch society.
