Full bibliography

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 in Florence, 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 coordinated the writing of an H2020 proposal on migration heritage, and 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 is working as the senior editor of the European Review of History, developing several socio-cultural projects, and participating as an advisor in different European projects dealing with migration and cultural heritage.
