Expertise: Ancient history & Classical languages and cultures & Greek language and literature

In Dutch

Tazuko van Berkel studies how the ancient Greeks saw themselves, human nature and the world. She is currently heading a research project on the history of economic thinking in Greek antiquity.

What conceptualisations of the body, freedom, rationality, individuality and competition are presupposed? And is economic knowledge descriptive or prescriptive, generalisable or contextual, numerical or narrative? As a member of The Young Academy, she plans to investigate how humanities scholars can engage in productive dialogue with the general public. She would also like to work with the Society of Arts and other parties on setting up a programme of dialogue and artistic intervention in which school pupils learn to reflect on consumer behaviour and debt issues.
