Back to overview

Julian Schaap (Rotterdam, 1988) is a PhD-lecturer in cultural sociology at the Department of Arts and Culture Studies.

Together with Pauwke Berkers and Koen van Eijck (EUR), Julian received a five-year grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) as a part of Doctorates in Humanities (‘Promoties in de Geesteswetenschappen’) to pursue his PhD on the topic of whiteness, gender and rock music. The international project is entitled ‘Elvis has finally left the building? Boundary work, whiteness and the reception of rock music in comparative perspective.’ For this research project, Julian received additional grants from Fulbright (for a visiting scholarship at Emory University, Atlanta, GA) and the Erasmus Trustfonds (for joint research with Jeroen van der Waal and Willem de Koster (ESSB) and Harvard's Project Implicit). Moreover, multiple articles based on this project have been shortlisted by the Erasmus Graduate School of Social Sciences and the Humanities (EGSH) awards for PhD excellence. He started his PhD and work as a lecturer in October 2013 and is due to finish in late 2018. 

Due to his research and valorization activities, the Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen (KNAW) selected him to become one of the Netherlands’ Faces of Science.

Julian’s research focuses on social and cultural stratification on the basis of whiteness, race-ethnicity and gender in various cultural fields. He has developed extensive expertise in cognitive sociology, including methodologies based on latency measures, such as the Implicit Association Test. Together with Pauwke Berkers he has published various papers and a book (out in June 2018) on gender inequality in metal music production. He has also published on religion and spirituality in online video games together with Stef Aupers (KU Leuven).

Julian obtained his bachelor degree in History from Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2011, graduating on the topic of the UN Peacekeeping mission in former Yugoslavia, 1991-1995. Shortly after, he followed a summer school on fear culture at Tallinn University in Estonia, triggering his interest in sociology. He enrolled in the Research Master in Sociology of Culture, Media and the Arts at the same university. As a part of this programme, he studied one semester at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom. In 2013 he graduated (cum laude) on the topic of whiteness and rock music with his master thesis ‘Just like Hendrix: Whiteness and the critical and consumer reception of rock music in the United States, 2003-2013.’
