My PhD thesis, on the history of film policy in Flanders and the relation with the national question, was selected for the first ‘Flemish PhD cup’ (Vlaamse PhD cup)! This contest aims to stimulate a more intense interaction between academic research and the broader society. In the coming weeks, the 16 selected participants will receive an intensive media training, after which 8 researchers will get to chance to present their PhD thesis at the final on 28 September.
