Zowi Vermeire

Since February 2019, Zowi Vermeire has been a PhD student at Utrecht University (the Netherlands). Her research focuses on the impact of digital media on our assumptions and perceptions about our (social) environment.

Currently, she researches whether and how young people, due to their online engagement, produce alternative ideas on what it means to be educated. ‘Alternative’ in this context means those forms of being educated that are generally not transferred, recognized or accepted within traditional schooling, such as being a successful streamer. She has a bachelor's in liberal, arts and sciences from Amsterdam University College. Her taught master is in film studies (philosophy pathway, King’s College London) and her research master’s is in Media and Performance Studies (Utrecht University). Before starting the PhD position, she worked for two and a half years as a researcher and developer at the Dutch public broadcasting agency BNNVARA.
