Geertje Mak, professor of the Political History of Gender in the Netherlands

Our esteemed colleague, dr Geertje Mak, assistant professor of Gender History at Radboud University since 2005, was been appointed professor at the University of Amsterdam. The chair, by special appointment, is held at the University of Amsterdam and was established on behalf of the Wilhelmina Drucker Foundation. Geertje will also continue her work at Radboud University after her appointment.
