Postdoctoral Researcher, Ghent University, Belgium

Dr. Jozefien De Bock received her MA in contemporary history at the University of Ghent. She worked on several projects dealing with migration before starting a doctoral research at the European University Institute, where she defended her PhD in October 2013. Since then, she curated for the Ghent city museum the open-air exhibition ‘Sticking Around. Over 50 years of migration to Ghent’, in which the results of her PhD research were translated to a wider audience. In 2015, she started a three year post-doctoral project at Ghent University, dealing with return migration and mobility among postwar labour migrants. At the same time, she serves as a consultant on several local, European and worldwide projects on migration and cultural heritage, and holds the position of senior editor of the European Review of History.
