Biography

Department of Political Science Radboud University Nijmegen Nijmegen, Gelderland
The Netherlands.

Iris van Huis received her Ph.D. at the Department of Political Science of Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and is currently a lecturer at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, teaching about “Cities and Change”. In her Ph.D. research, she stud- ied how social interventions that try to engage men in gender-equality issues impact on inequalities and intersections of gender, ethnicity, and class, while also studying normalizing and enabling angles. In the BABE research project, van Huis studied refugee migrants’ visual and oral resistances against anti-immigrant discourse. She also studied how recent changes in the Amsterdam Tropenmuseum were initiated by a protest group called Decolonize the Museum, placing these efforts into a wider national and European perspective.

Dissonant Heritages and Memories in Contemporary Europe

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license This open access book discusses political, economic, social, and humanitarian challenges that influence both how people deal with their past and how they build their identities in contemporary Europe. Ongoing debates on migration, on local, national, inter- and transnational levels, prove that it is a divisive issue with regards to understanding European integration and identity. At the same time, the European Union increasingly invests in projects related to European heritage, museums, and cultural memory networks, while having to take dissonant heritages into account. These processes in their combination offer an interesting dynamic and form the complex puzzle that poses challenging questions for anyone involved in academic research, heritage practices, and policy debates. With this puzzle at its core, this book explicitly focuses on slippery and transforming notions of Europe and critically discusses ongoing and transforming power structures of heritage and memory in today’s Europe. The book combines theoretical and methodological contributions to the debates on European heritage and memory studies and in-depth analyses of empirical case studies. Its main aim is to bring research fields concerning memory and heritage into a closer dialogue and thus explore the cultural and political dynamics of contemporary Europe.
