Anick Vollebergh

Anick Vollebergh is Postdoctoral researcher and Lecturer at the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies, Radboud University. She was trained as an anthropologist at the University of Amsterdam. Her PhD dissertation (UvA, 2016) traces the affective politics mobilized by the notion of 'living together' in two diverse neighborhoods in Antwerp, Belgium. Her work deals with the intersection of culturalist and secularist politics, urban governance, the rise of the populist right, and (pious) Judaism in postcolonial Europe. In the ReEu project, she investigates how professionals in the domain of parenting in Paris craft notions and practices of 'good parenting' as they engage with their diversifying clientele and current political anxieties.
