Milan van Lange, MA
Milan works as a PhD candidate at NIOD and Utrecht University. He obtained his Master's degree in History (cum laude) at Radboud University in Nijmegen. In his current PhD project 'War and Emotions', he investigates the role of emotions in the post-war dealing with the consequences of World War II in Dutch parliament (1945-1989). Milan is using digitised source material and combines computational text analysis with more traditional historical research. He is interested in twentieth-century history, the digitisation of historical archives and innovation in historical research methodology, including the integration of computational research techniques, data analysis, statistics and programming.
Alongside his PhD research, Milan worked as a Research Fellow at the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) in Belval, Luxembourg in the spring of 2019. He also teaches at Utrecht University and is one of the initiators of the NIOD project 'Oorlog uit Eerste Hand: Oorlogsbrieven (1935-1950) van het NIOD digitaal' ('War from First Hand: War Letters (1935-1950) from NIOD Digitized').
