Personlig profil


Karen Lauwers started in September 2019 as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Helsinki, where she is working on the French-Algerian axis of the CALLIOPE-project: “Vocal Articulations of Parliamentary Identity and Empire,” funded by Josephine Hoegaerts’ ERC starting grant. During her doctoral research, Karen Lauwers was a member of “Power in History,” the Center for Political History at the University of Antwerp, where she completed her PhD titled “Negotiating the Republic. Direct interactions between unorganized citizens and MPs in France, ca.1900-1930s.” Moving her focus from Belgium to France, and from discourse in parliament to the perspectives on representation and citizenship held by people outside of political institutions, she studied letters written by “ordinary” French citizens to four specific députés (MPs). For the CALLIOPE project, she redirects her focus on political identities of the colonial subaltern, and more specifically on French-Algerian Arab bureaus’ expectations of and experiences with Algerian forms of leadership and political identity, Algerian modes of public speech, political knowledge, and news circulation among the Muslim population (1846-1871).
