Wouter Linmans is a PhD candidate at the Institute for History.
Wouter Linmans is working on a PhD thesis on visions and fears of future warfare in Dutch society (1918-1939). How did the experiences of the First World War bring forth fantasies and visions of future warfare? How were these images present in different societal, political or ideological groups and movements in Dutch society? And at which points in time did they prompt people to take action, both on a personal and a political level?
Wouter studied History at Leiden University and graduated cum laude on a thesis on how Dutch communists responded to the outbreak of the German Revolution (1918-1923).
Fields of interest are the study of cultural history, political violence (19th-20th century) and collective memory.
