Personal profile

Research interests

Lise Zurné is a lecturer at the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication. Her PhD project explored the representation of modern war history in re-enactment practices and focuses on how reenactors engage with sensitive pasts, including decolonization, women in war and the embodiment of suffering. She completed a Master Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology (VU Amsterdam) and Visual Anthropology (Leiden University) both cum laude. Already early on, she researched the politics of historical representation with a bachelor thesis on monuments, and a master thesis and documentary on historical re-enactment of the decolonization in Indonesia. The documentary The Feel of History (2017) has been screened at various ethnographic film festivals.

She is also a co-founder of the ethnovision, a collective of five visual anthropologists who provide workshops on the use of visual methods in academic research. She also co-chairs the Working Group Safety
in the Field at the LOVA network for feminist anthropologists and is member of its editorial board of the Journal of Feminist Anthropology and Gender Studies.
