Jeroen ter Brugge (1967) is PhD candidate at the Department of History of the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communications, Erasmus University Rotterdam and curator of the academic programme at the Maritime Museum Rotterdam.

Ter Brugge joined the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communications in September 2014 as result of the cooperation between the Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Maritime Museum Rotterdam. Together with prof.dr. H.A.A. Klemann and dr. Els Jacobs he forms the team of the Rotterdam Centre for Modern Maritime History (RCMMH). As a PhD student he studies the Dutch shipbuilding industry in the 19th and 20th Century (1870-1914) in an international context, using both archival sources, literature and the museum’s collection. This research project focuses on both economic, social, political and technical aspects and aims to analyze the Dutch shipbuilding performance in a comparison to other successful countries that were active in this field. 

As a curator in the Maritime Museum Rotterdam he is responsible for the research programme related to the extensive collection. The museum holds over 850.000 items, which reflect Dutch maritime activity and culture in the past and present and by which new insights and surprising stories to a broad audience can be shared.

Currently he works on publications on the Royal Barge (‘Koningssloep’) built at the Rotterdam Navy Yard in 1818, the seizure by the English in 1795 of the last home coming fleet of the Dutch East India Company (V.O.C.), and on the article ‘Migrating fisherman, a comparison between Scheveningen and Vlaardingen (the Netherlands), 1875-1950’ which will appear in the proceedings of the 11th North Sea History Conference (2014).

Ter Brugge was director of the Fisheries Museum in Vlaardingen from 2000-2007 and was active in the field of archaeology at the State Service for Archaeology as provincial archaeologist for Utrecht (1996-2000) and was town archaeologist of Vlaardingen (1993-2000).
