In my PhD project, I look at interactions which took place in history (1800-2000) between different disciplines. I focus on disciplines where clear disciplinary boundaries are absent, to see what such boundaries are and how they are formed. I am currently tracing interactions which involve the discipline of general linguistics.  

My research is part of the NWO funded project The Flow of Cognitive Goods .
