Utrecht Centre for Medieval Studies
Since September 2016, Andrea is a Board Member of the Utrecht Centre for Medieval Studies.
As a member of the Werkgroep Middelnederlandse Artesliteratuur (WEMAL, Study Group Middle Dutch Artes Literature) since 2008, Andrea collaborates on transcriptions and digital editions of medieval artes manuscripts. Artes literature encompasses texts with an instructive goal, such as recipes, or treatises about surgery, magic or astrology.
Before Andrea started her PhD research, she worked as a communications advisor and editor at the Faculty of Humanities from June 2007 to September 2016. Among other things, she was the editor-in-chief of HUMmagazine and of the Faculty's corporate website www.uu.nl/hum.
Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen
From 2006 to 2014 Andrea was a board member of the Stichting Jacob Cornelisz. van Oostsanen, which aimed to make a wide audience familiar with the work of this 16th-century artist. After the successful exhibition 'Van Oostsanen - the first Dutch master' (Amsterdam Museum, Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar, 15 March - 29 June 2014) the Foundation has ended its activities as its goals have been achieved.
In 2005 Andrea graduated cum laude at Utrecht University in the MA programme 'Taal en cultuurstudies' (Language and culture studies). Her thesis was about illustrated manuscripts and early prints of the story of St. Brendan (13th-15th century).
