Having finished her bachelor in Gender- & Postcolonial Studies at Utrecht University, Laura is now in her first year of the Research master Theology & Religious Studies at the VU Amsterdam. She is doing the specialisation Peace, Trauma and Religion, which looks at religious conflict from a peace perspective and deals with both the healing and the destructing power of religion. In her own research she focuses on religion and trauma from a Gender and Postcolonial perspective.
She has been writing for as long as she can remember, and hopes to one day write a book. Within EARS, her passion for writing and interest in religion perfectly blend together.
