Marie-Gabrielle Verbergt (°1995) is a PhD Student at Ghent University (FWO aspirant, 2018-2023) working at the intersection of theory of history, historiography, the history of European integration, and the sociology of knowledge. She has obtained her BA in History at the University of Leuven (2016), holds an MA in History from Ghent University (2017) and an MA in the Social Sciences from The University of Chicago (2018), where she was a Fulbright Student Grantee and B.A.E.F. Baillet Latour Fellow 2017-2018. Her current work focuses on the epistemic aspects of EU-sponsored uses of the past between ca. 1970 and today. She is especially interested in the European production and institutionalization of ideas on evidence, objectivity, anachronism, and the selection of ‘appropriate’ forms to transmit various types of knowledge about the past.
