drs. T. Schuringa

PhD student


I received my Master’s degree in History at Groningen University in 2007. My Master’s thesis concerned the ARP-leader Jan Schouten (1883-1963) and the tradition of antirevolutionary leadership since 1840. I did some research on former MP and Central Bank-president Jelle Zijlstra (1918-2001) before being awarded a PhD-position in the department for Contemporary History as from september 1st, 2012. My project deals with the way economic main bodies (Social-economic Council, the Central Bank and the Labour Foundation) collaborated with the Dutch government to shape economic policies after the Second World War. Its provisional title reads: Among economists. An historical analysis of the collaboration between politics and economic advisory and policy-making bodies in the Netherlands, 1945-2008 . The supervisors are prof. dr. D.F.J. Bosscher and prof. dr. D.J. Wolffram.

Between 2008 and 2011 I’ve been lecturing in the department for Contemporary History. I provided classes in: Academic Skills, History of International Relations for IO/IB-students, Dutch History II, Historical Skills and Globalization II for history-students. I’ve been a first-year tutor as well, and I’ve been lecturing Dutch History I and II to part-time students.

During the first semester of 2012-2013 I’ll teach History of International Relations to International Law-students (HIR-IR).

In 2010 I received the certificate for successfully completing the course ‘Elementary university teaching skills’. I currently participate in the programme that prepares for the university teaching qualification (BKO).
