Profile

Biography

After having obtained a MA in Sociology at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (2005), Laurie gained an advanced MA in 'Quantitative analysis in social sciences' (2008 Kubrussel/ Kuleuven). Two years later, she completed her doctoral thesis at the ULB (funded by the National Fund for the Scientific Research). Her PhD research focused on the profile of visitors of modern and contemporary art museums in Belgium. She joined the University of York in 2011. 

She is a sociologist, focusing on cultural institutions, socio-cultural inequalities,  and more recently in urban sociology. She also has a strong interest in social sciences methodology. She has undertaken research on visitors of modern and contemporary art museums, on the role of artists in the society and on different dimensions of cultural participation and social engagement. She has collaborated with the Observatory of Cultural Policies of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (Belgium) and analysed cultural participation in this part of the country. She has also worked on themes such as ethnicity, intergroups relations and immigration. In 2014, she finished her role as PI on the EUCROSS project ‘The Europeanisation of Everyday Life’.
