Introducing: Karin van Leeuwen

My name is Karin van Leeuwen and on 15 August I joined FASoS as an assistant professor working in the Department of History. As a historian specialising in the political history of contemporary Europe, I will be teaching in the European Studies and Arts & Culture programmes. In the first years, I will combine my position at FASoS with a post doc project at the University of Copenhagen.

My current, Copenhagen-based research regards the history of the League of Nations and international law (1919-1945). In a sub-project focusing on transnational networks of law professors and practitioners, I will analyse how new practices were established in teaching and understanding international law in the interwar years. This project follows up on my earlier research on the legal history of European integration.

Before joining Maastricht University, I worked as a lecturer in History and European Studies at the University of Amsterdam and as a researcher for the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands. I hold a PhD in History from the Radboud University Nijmegen.
