Eva van Kemenade is a Joint PhD Candidate at the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance at Warwick and the University of Amsterdam (2020-2024), co-supervised by Prof. David Lines, Prof. Ingrid De Smet and dr. Maartje van Gelder. Her doctoral project, ‘Popular Festive Rituals in Space, Senses and Print in Renaissance Italy and France’, investigates the political implications of popular festive rituals in an urban context, in particular Lyon and Bologna. Her research combines popular politics with sensorial history and book history, by focusing on these festivals’ (political) meaning through space, vision, smell, touch and sound, as well as print.

She has held various research fellowships, amongst others at the École française de Rome (EFR) and the Royal Dutch Institute in Rome (KNIR). In 2018-2019 she was awarded the Prix de Paris by the French Embassy of the Netherlands and the Fondation Prix de Paris.
