Trained as a historian of the nineteenth-century United States, Ann Marie Wilson has written on the history of feminism and international humanitarianism. Since moving to the Netherlands in 2011, she has shifted her research focus to modern Dutch history -- with an eclectic twist. After exploring the history of Dutch LGBT politics and the display practices of natural history museums, she is now at work on projects related to the history of environmental education in the Low Countries.

This ties closely to her teaching at LUC. Since 2015, the bulk of her teaching has centered on service-learning projects focused on education. Her “Community Project” course invited students to explore the history and politics of multicultural education in the Netherlands, while working as tutors in a school serving immigrant youth. Her “Ecology Project” course led students in an investigation of what it means to be ecologically literate in the Rhine/Meuse/Scheldt river delta in the twenty-first century. Finally, her “College Project” course currently guides student research into the politics and practices of higher education, with special attention to how education is carried out at LUC.

In addition to her teaching and research, Ann coordinates LUC’s academic advising programme for first-year students, as well as the LUC Writing Studio.
