I research cultural literacies in transition, focussing primarily on the construction of illiteracy. 

I explore how cultural literacy pedagogies have expanded our understanding of illiteracy, from a concept indicating the lack of language skills to political equipment for governance.  Naming illiteracy is a powerful gesture, in contrast, to be named illiterate entails a restriction of one's agency. The objective of my research is two-fold. On the one hand, I inquire about the cultural production of illiteracy. On the other hand, I inquire how education can emancipate literate people, who end up navigating this new form of cultural illiteracy. 

I investigate the changing role of illiteracy in cultural governance, higher education and heritage language courses. 

I obtained a master's degree in Cultural Studies at the Catholic University of Leuven, and a bachelor's degree in Social Work at University College Ghent.
