More information

Back to overview

Siri Driessen is a PhD candidate within the project War! Popular Culture and European Heritage of Major Armed Conflicts. Her sub-project ‘Visiting War Sites’ focuses on the many visits that are made to locations that are related to three European armed conflicts of the twentieth century: the First World War, the Second World War and the civil war in former Yugoslavia. What motivates people to visit these bleak remnants of history?

War! Is a collaborative project of ErMeCC, the Center for Historical Culture and Erasmus Studio and is funded by the Research Excellence Initiative (REI) of the Erasmus University. The sub-project ‘Visiting War Sites’ is supervised by prof. dr. Stijn Reijnders and prof. dr. Maria Grever.  

Siri obtained a BA in History at the University of Amsterdam as well as a BA in Fine Arts. In 2011 she received a research master in Cultural Analysis (cum laude) at the University of Amsterdam. Her master thesis ‘Susceptible Eyes. Science, Spectatorship and Speculation in Nineteenth-Century Renditions of the Moon’ analyses the introduction of photography into (astronomical) science and exposes the changing conceptualization of vision, observation and truth in nineteenth-century scientific texts, photos and images
