portretfoto_Marieke_Hendriksen_Echt_Mooij_fotografie-5986I am a historian of early modern science, art, and ideas. My research focuses on how sensory experiences and material culture shaped the history of epistemic cultures and knowledge identities. I combine archival research and close reading with object-driven research, performative methods (‘reconstructions’), and digital humanities research methods.

I received my PhD from Leiden University in 2012 and have held fellowships at institutions such as the Center for Science and Society at Columbia University, the National Maritime Museum in London, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (Wellcome Trust grant), the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, and the Science History Institute in Philadelphia. I currently work as a researcher at NL-Lab, a research group at the Humanities Cluster of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and I am co-leading the NWO-funded project Art DATIS. I was recently awarded an inaugural KNAW Early Career Award
