About the speakers

Niels van Poecke, MA

<link people n-van-poecke>Niels van Poecke is a lecturer and PhD candidate at the Department of Art and Culture Studies. His PhD research (working title: Reshaping Authenticity) focuses on studying the production, reception and aesthetics of indie-folk music in the Netherlands (1992-present). Furthermore, he teaches the following courses: Academic Skills, Introduction to Cultural Policy and Introduction to Aesthetics. He occasionally writes about sociology, aesthetics and popular music culture for the webzine Notes on metamodernism.

Dr. Samira van Bohemen

Samira van Bohemen is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Publci Administration and Sociology. Currently she is engaged in a research project about youth, ethnicity and sexuality. The project is provocatively called 'Good Sex' because it aims to move away from the focus on ‘risk’ in studies about youth and sexuality. The three year project is funded by the Dutch Fund for Sexuality Research (FWOS).
