Back to overview

Gijsbert Oonk (1966) is a Global Historian whose research and teaching activities are in the field of Migration, Citizenship, Capitalism and Inequality, and Sport.

Gijsbert Oonk is project leader of research project on History, Sport and Nation that has been awarded a prestigious Research Excellence Initiative (REI) grant of €417,000. This interdisciplinary research project is titled 'Sport and National Identity: Changing Citizenship and the Global Battle for Talent'. The grant solidifies interdisciplinary collaboration between three departments: the Department of History and the Department of Media and Communication as well as the Department of Sociology contribute to this new and innovative project.

Current projects

Sport, Nation and Migration

The research project ‘Sport and Nation’ focuses on talented migrant athletes in football and the Olympics in the context of changing citizenship, ‘complex nationality issues’ and elite migration. We will emphasize how ideas, institutions and context in this global ‘race for talent’ have changed over the past century and highlight the paradox of states promoting the ‘nation’ without ‘nationals’. In this project we currently have employed three PhD students. See for more our Sport and Nation website.
