Véronique Faber works at the University of Luxembourg’s Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) and will study the intertwining of the national, transregional and transnational in popular fairground culture in Luxembourg, using the example of the Schueberfouer, as well as how this intertwining changed in the period from 1945 to 1975.
This empiric case study is part of the “Popular Culture Transnational - Europe in the Long 1960s” project.
She holds a M. Phil. in Social Anthropology and African studies from the University of Vienna and a Higher Diploma in Arts Administration from the University College Dublin. Her master thesis was based on field research investigating market women in Accra, Ghana and changing power relations within the framework of the muted group theory (Shirley Ardener). Her other interests are cultural practices, socio-economic and political influences on culture and society.
Thesis supervisor is Prof. Dr. Machteld Venken.
