Biography and/or project

I am a theorist of history, and currently imployed as a post-doc at the Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science at the Philosophy Department of Ghent University, Belgium. I’ve written a PhD about the ethics of history from the perspective of Emmanuel Levinas (2013). Lately, I’ve been mainly working on the relation between history and society. I am particulary fascinated by the ethical issues involved in this, as well as by the idea of an experiential and/or emotional relationship with the past. Nevertheless, I’m also interested in basically every kind of theoretical reflection on the way people deal with history. Next to this, I also know a thing or two about philosophy of science, ethics and 20th century continental philosophy.
