Sherilyn Deen is a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam. Her PhD project is part of the larger NWO-VICI project EnGendering Europe’s Muslim Question. In her own project, Sherilyn focuses on analyzing statistical knowledge production on ‘mixed’ marriages and relationships (gemengde huwelijken en relaties) in the Netherlands, and how this relates to the problematization of Muslims in public debates. She is interested in how notions of ‘mixing’ are produced in both contemporary and historical population statistics, how knowledge on ‘mixing’ circulates, and how this sheds light on the entanglements of race, religion, reproduction and the nation. For her project, Sherilyn draws from and combines insights from Science and Technology Studies, Critical Race Studies, Postcolonial Studies and Gender and Sexuality studies. Her PhD project is supervised by prof. dr. Sarah Bracke and prof. dr. Amade M’charek.
