Anne van Eldik is a PhD candidate at the Erasmus Research Center for Media, Communication & Culture. Her research focuses on urban media engagement by looking at how young people construct an urban identity from their creative media use. This project is part of Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens. Anne’s research is supervised by prof. dr. Jeroen Jansz, prof. dr. Liesbet van Zoonen, and dr. Julia Kneer.
Anne received a bachelor’s degree in English Language & Culture (American Studies) from Radboud University Nijmegen (2014), after which she obtained a master’s degree in Media, Culture & Society (2015) and a Research master’s degree in Sociology of Culture, Media and the Arts (abridged program) (2016) at the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication. Both her master’s theses focused on the use of social media – the first investigating the norms and expectations regarding responsiveness and content on Mobile Instant Messaging platforms, and the second looking at the role of social media during the international student’s freshmen year in the Netherlands.
