Jasmin Seijbel (1992) is a PhD candidate at the Erasmus School of History Culture and Communication (Department of History). Her research involves educational programmes initiated to prevent discrimination and antisemitism in football stadiums. In this project she collaborates with major stakeholders in the field, including the Fancoach project of Feyenoord and the Anne Frank House. Feyenoord invites penalised supporters to develop knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust through an educational programme. Jasmin researches Feyenoord’s educational programme; it’s opportunities and limitations. She investigates which histories are told and the intended and unintended short- and long-term effects of the programme. Her supervisors are Prof. dr.Gijsbert Oonk and Dr. Jacco van Sterkenburg.
Jasmin holds a Master’s degree in Global History and International Relations from the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands and a Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology and Development Studies (cum laude) from KU Leuven, Belgium. For her Anthropology master thesis, she conducted fieldwork in South-West Uganda in order to understand the social, cultural and political development accompanying rural to urban migration.
