As I always have been interested in image theory and visual arts, I chose to do a master’s degree in Filmstudies and Visual Culture after obtaining my bachelor’s in Psychology. I am happy to have made this choice as today I find myself working as a teaching and research assistant at the University of Antwerp, where I get to interact with students on a daily basis and I can work together with researchers from different fields who share my interest in Visual Culture. I started my PhD a year and six months ago. My project focuses on the development of new visual methods and the study of visual representations of colonialism in Belgian and Congolese cities. In the course of the past two years I have assisted various workshops and conferences on the topics of ‘decolonization’, ‘alternative narratives’ and ‘visual methods’. I was involved in the organization of the International Visual Methods Seminar held in 2015 and I am a co-organizer of the 2016 conference ‘Raoul Peck and the Iconography of Lumumba’. I have published a number of articles, but only recently submitted an article to a peer-reviewed journal for the first time (Journal of Sociology). I have lectured at the Institute for Modern Language Research in London and the university of Antwerp, where I am involved in the courses ‘Theory of Visual Communication’ and ‘Visual studies’. **_Workshops & Conferences_** Decolonizing the Museum: Limits and Possibilities - University of Amsterdam (2014) ‘Framing The Object: Memory, Nation, Narrative - Institute for Modern Language Research, London (2015) Lecture: ‘Everything waits to be decided’ International Visual Methods Seminar - University of Antwerp (2015) **_Publications _**- Een nieuwe blik op het verleden in publieke ruimte (2015) Rooilijn (1), Antwerp - ‘Transformations of Place du Trône – Visualizing narratives of Belgian colonialism’ (under review)

Qu’est-ce que le patrimoine change à Montréal? Qu’est-ce que Montréal change au patrimoine? Ce débat vise à mettre en discussion l'évolution et le devenir du patrimoine dans la métropole du Québec en interrogeant les motifs de l'attachement (ou de l'indifférence) de la société civile et des décideurs, mais aussi en questionnant les moyens dont ils disposent pour agir sur le patrimoine. Au-delà de la fameuse "pierre grise" et des matériaux expressifs de l'identité historique de Montré...

What if we changed our views on heritage? And if heritage has already changed? While, on the global scene, states maintain their leading role in the mobilization of social and territorial histories, on the local scale, regions, neighbourhoods and parishes have changed. Citizens and communities too: they latch on to heritage to express an unprecedented range of belongings that no law seems to be able to take measures to contain, often to the discontent of...
