Back to overview

Zouhair Hammana (1990) is a PhD candidate at the Erasmus Research Centre for Media,
Communication and Culture. Under the supervision of prof. dr. Susanne Janssen and dr. Marc
Verboord, Zouhair studies cultural literacy in everyday urban life as part of the Erasmus
Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens.

The project examines, for various urban settings in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom in
what ways and to what extent young people from different cultural and social backgrounds
engage with the perceived ‘cultural other’. In specific, Zouhair is interested in how cultural literacy can be used as a framework to understand engagement with the Other, and how students (aged 15-18), in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, uses this framework in their engagement with people, ideas, beliefs and artefacts from cultural backgrounds of the ‘other’, how this can be explained and how this influences and/or shapes the (cultural) identity of these
young citizens.

Zouhair obtained his master’s degree in Urban Sociology at the Erasmus University of
Rotterdam in 2015. In his thesis he explored the influence of ethnocentric elements in animated
films/cartoons on the ethnocentrism of children between the ages of 5 and 8 years old. Prior to
joining ERMeCC as a PhD candidate, Zouhair worked as a junior lecturer in the Sociology- and
Public Administration bachelor and the Urban Sociology master at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam.
