Back to overview

Talitha Stam is a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Public Administration and Sociology of Erasmus University Rotterdam.

Talitha conducted an ethnographic study on the aspirations of minority ‘white’ Dutch girls in multi-ethnic lower vocational schools as a doctoral researcher. This was part of the FP7-funded international research project: Reducing Early School Leaving in Europe (RESL.eu) for which she also managed the longitudinal quantitative and qualitative data collection among young people at-risk of early school leaving in the Netherlands.

Talitha is currently involved in the Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens funded research project: Making Rotterdam’s children more resilient: Closing the socio-economic/ethnic gap in students’ school performances by strengthening partnerships between parents, schools, and children. For this, we work in close collaboration with our societal partner Samen Leren/Bureau Frontlijn from the municipality of Rotterdam.

Before joining EUR, Talitha worked as an academic research coordinator at the IS Academy Human Security in Fragile States at Wageningen University for which she travelled to various (post) disaster regions, including Haiti, North Uganda and South Sudan. She combined her studies with journalism reports, producing professional blogs, radio reports and two short documentaries
