A big research project is 'Cultural history of media platforms'. Bringing together the best specialists on (media) history, the project aims to produce a coherent set of studies about the history of Dutch media platforms in international context. Three editions are ready: The Newspaper (published in spring 2019), The Radio (fall 2019), and The Television (fall 2021). The project is a cooperation of UoG, UoA Netherlands Institute for Sound and Image, Dutch Royal Library and publisher Boom Amsterdam.

Since 2014 a research project is running on the historical development of the complex relation of media and politics on basis of digital media sources of Royal Library, It is funded by the NL eScience Center in Amsterdam. For this project I worked as a research fellow at the Dutch Institute of Advanced Studies NIAS. The results landed in a theoretical article about historical newspaper research and digital media and - together with prof.dr. G. Voerman and dr. P. Bos - an article with empitiocal results about pillarisation and media
