Research


  • From 2001-2006 Marijke Meijer Drees was leader of the research project on literary aspects of early modern Dutch pamplets, funded by NWO (Aspasia grant): Literatuur met effect: Nederlandse pamfletten ca. 1600-1750. Main output:  a bundle with articles (2006) and two dissertations, one by Joost Vrieler (2007) and the other by Clazina Dingemanse (2008).    
  • She also conducted the NWO-funded research project The power of satire: cultural boundaries contested (2009-2013). Main output: two dissertations (one by Ivo Nieuwenhuis, UvA 2014; one by Abdelghani El Khairat, UU 2013) and the peer reviewed book The Power of Satire with collected articles edited in cooperation with Sonja de Leeuw (Amsterdam/Philadelphia, John Benjamins, 2015).
  • Since 2014 her research is focussed on early modern processing of disasters through poems, drama, pamphlets, sermons, chronicles, et cetera.
