Editorial Board V
The editorial board of Ongehoord concerns itself with proofreading and rewriting articles that students in the Humanities Honours Programme have sent to us. On top of that, we keep busy by organising different projects, like poetry contests, podcast recordings, organising events and maintaining this website.
Hi, my name is Esmee and this year, I am in charge of the Ongehoord committee. I am in my third year of the English Language and Culture programme, with a special interest in sociolinguistics. I am also currently pursuing a minor in conflict studies, where I am especially interested in discourse analysis. In my free time, I enjoy reading and writing, which makes Ongehoord an especially interesting place for me. I am very excited to be able to help the committee progress and change this year, especially because we have an almost completely new editorial board, with so many new faces!
Hi! My name is Monice, nice to meet you! I’m in my third year of Liberal Arts and Sciences, with a major in psychology but an everlasting love for the humanities. I adore writing academically and creatively. I’ve been doing the latter for most of my life. Ongehoord allows me to discuss this hobby of mine every week, with a cup of coffee and great company!

Hello! I’m Alma, a fourth year Liberal Arts and Sciences student specialized in Gender Studies, media studies and intersectionality. In my free time I like to read Young Adult books and create immersive stories with my friends through tabletop games. I critically engage with all the media I consume, may that be cartoons, academic writing or podcasts.
Hey! I’m Koen de Boer, a third year Philosophy and second year honours student. Born and raised in Dordrecht in the Netherlands. In my free time I mainly like to hang out with friends and play basketball. My reason for joining Ongehoord was because I wanted to be an active part of the honours community and I find it interesting to see what other honours students are writing about and I wanted to be a part of helping them share this.
