About me

I am Inge, a researcher and teacher in literary and media studies. I work as an Associate Professor of Culture Studies at Tilburg University's School of Humanities & Digital Sciences. I was a Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellow at University of California Santa Barbara's English Department and the Norwegian Reading Center of the University of Stavanger, and a Junior Core Fellow (2018-'19) at the Institute for Advanced Study in Budapest.

I hold a PhD in Comparative Literature from Utrecht University (2015), where I also completed postdoctoral research on creativity in education. I am a board member of Netherlands Institute for Cultural Analysis (NICA) & Tilburg Young Academy. Last but not least, I teach courses on Attention Economies, Digital Media Aesthetics, and Visual Culture & the Body, and I am coordinator of Tilburg University's Honors Program.
