Dr. Anouk Smeekes

I'm an Associate Professor at the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Science and the chairgroup Youth Studies at Utrecht University.

My research interests are in the field of prejudice and intergroup relations. In particular, I study attitudes towards immigrants and feelings of national belonging among native majority members, with a focus on perceptions of national history and identity. 

In addition, I am involved as a teacher and/or coordinator in the MERM Research Master (e.g.,  Ethnic prejudice, Research Practicum III) and in the ISW bachelor program (e.g., Introductie ISW, BA thesis).
