Research cluster deep histories fragile memories

Deep histories fragile memories is a fluid research constellation that centers around a core group: Wendy Morris, Laurens Dhaenens, Anja Veirman, Hannah Van Hove, Mariske Broeckmeyer, Alexandra Crouwers, Joeri Verbesselt, Renée Turner and Nele Möller,

The research of the members of dhfm engages with ecologies, landscapes and worldings, with fictioning and embodied experimental writing, with the recuperation of marginalised histories and the writing of new narratives.
