Bernike Pasveer has been invited by the director of The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NIAS) for a fellowship at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS) in Amsterdam. She will be part of a theme-group on the topic of Refuge & Belonging.

During her fellowship, Bernike will work on a project started last year about food and/as refuge, in which she will look into how refugees use foodways to enact modes of belonging and home.

During her fellowship Bernike will work on a project started last year about food and/as refuge, in which she will look into how refugees use foodways to enact modes of belonging and home, or to provide for (temporary and partial) refuge; in the “interrelated contexts of on one hand nationalist and right-wing resurgences across the globe, and on the other hand a ‘refugee crisis'” (Tayob, Steinman & Van Es 2020).

The NIAS Fellowship will allow Bernike to work on this project for a period of 5 months in the academic year 2021/22. She will be part of a small theme group consisting of dr. Naluwembe Binaisa (London Global University) and dr. Paolo Boccagni (University of Trento). Jan Willem Duyvendak (director of NIAS; UvA) and Fenneke Wekker (NIAS) will join the theme group as working members.

All fellows will become part of a carefully selected community of independent thinkers, in a collaborative environment where the space is created to ask new questions beyond disciplinary boundaries.

The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Sciences is an intellectual haven for international researchers, writers, journalists and artists to pursue their research or projects, to work in an interdisciplinary environment and to share their knowledge with society.
