Profile

Since October 2017, I work as a postdoctoral researcher on the project ‘Gameful Music Performances for Smart, Inclusive, and Sustainable Societies’ (GAMPSISS). In this interdisciplinary project, I am investigating listening cultures and classical music audiences in order to explore if and how music listening culture can be altered through gamification. Using classical music pieces as case-studies, I am drawing on interviews, survey data and experiments to examine values realized in the aesthetic experience of music listening. Within the project at large, altering the listening experience with gameful music performances is explored for its potential to maximize the ethical impact of confrontations with the arts. This is expected to be achieved by helping audiences to engage with artworks in a playful, yet deep and multi-layered way.

Next to my postdoctoral research, I work as a lecturer in the Ba and Ma program Arts, Culture and Society at the Department of Arts and Culture Studies. I have taught various courses such as ‘Arts, Culture and Engagement’, ‘Methods of Qualitative Research’ in IBaCs, and tutorials in Statistics, ‘Introduction to Social Science Research’, ‘Contemporary Approaches to Cultural Sociology’ and also ‘Economic Geography of Creativity and Urban development’.

I hold Ba in Sociology from the University of Hamburg and a Master of Science degree in Sociology of Culture, Media and the Arts. In January 2017, I received my Ph.D. from the Erasmus University Rotterdam. My PhD research evolved around questions of inequality in cultural participation of diverse social groups within Northern Europe. It addressed how status distinction is practiced and boundaries are negotiated in discourse about taste in fashion, music and visual arts. This research has led me to interview young business professionals, service workers and voracious cultural consumers and tied in with my broader interest in the complex relations between identity and consumption.
