This project examines how moral codes of conduct and tolerance towards criminal behavior (particularly theft and other crimes against property) in the Netherlands changed as a result of the German occupation in 1940-1945.
The cultural legacy of the European Recovery Program has not yet been grasped: a visual matrix that was designed to translate, mediate, and communicate abstract political and economic concepts as easily understandable narratives. Transnational studies have long emphasized processes of mediation, migration, hybridization, and circulation as key elements of international and transcultural encounters and confrontations.

Mapping Transatlantic Routes of Identity: The Netherlands and the Uses of American Reference Culture for 20th Century Discourses on Race and (anti-)Racism
The project Transatlantic Routes of Identities focuses on investigating the complex ways in which Dutch discussions about racism and emancipation have evolved in relation to America since the 1900s. The major aim of the project is to map the prevalence and impact of race-related concepts that originated in the United States in a very large corpus of Dutch newspapers and magazines.
Re/Presenting Europe: Arenas of Belonging: Sport Heroes as Models of Aspiration, Inspiration, and Participation
Dutch representations of Europe have not acknowledged the long presence of the super-diverse groups of non-white “others”. This lack of knowledge is intensified by ethno-racial stereotyping which has produced exclusion and social tension. NWA-Re/Presenting Europe analyses misrepresentations in Dutch sports, urban arts, and education. RU-partners focus on sports as an arena of belonging and on sports heroes as possible models of aspiration.
This project identifies the presence and significance of gratitude in the long history of transatlantic relations. It aims to offer new perspectives on European-North American relations and to place, amongst other things, ordinary civilians, women, children, emotions, and material culture more firmly into the history of international relations.
