On Thursday September 15, 2022 NOG PhD Rozemarijn van de Wal will defend her dissertation Dancing in the Kitchens of History. Eileen Power (1889-1940). Her dissertation is part of the wider project SPICE ‘Scientific Personae in Cultural Encounters’. As the aim of the project is to research the construction of scientific personae through scientific travel and international exchange, these documents are essential. By analyzing such ego-documents, insight can be gained into what constitutes a scientific persona and also how this changes through time and space.

Rozemarijn’s PhD defense is part of the two day conference ‘Telling Lives in Science: Reflections on Scholarly (auto)Biography’, September 15-16, 2022 hosted by the RUG. The conference also features Prof. dr. Mineke Bosch’ farewell lecture. See here for more information on the conference.
