Vincent Baptist receives CLARIAH Research Fellowship

Vincent Baptist, PhD candidate in the Department of History at Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC), has received a CLARIAH Research Fellowship. Granted by CLARIAH (Common Lab Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities), the national research infrastructure for the humanities and social sciences, the research fellowships are intended to carry out small research projects, by using data and/or software that are part of the CLARIAH infrastructure and to further improve these.

As CLARIAH Research Fellow from September 2022 onwards, Vincent Baptist will work with the CLARIAH Media Suite on the project ‘Framing Industrial City Icons (FICI): Cross-Media Analysis of Post-War Urban Iconization’.

How have landmarks of Dutch industrial cities been framed, both visually and discursively, as icons during the post-war period? Using the Media Suite’s collection materials and tools, this project analyses a particular process of representation, ‘iconisation’, through three case studies from different Dutch industrial cities and with historical overlap: Tilburg’s TextielMuseum, Rotterdam’s Euromast and Eindhoven’s Evoluon.

The project uses the national television, radio and newspaper collections in the Media Suite, in order to investigate how processes of iconisation have manifested themselves through different media, generated recurring visual and discursive tropes, and potentially evolved over time for the selected case studies.’
