Linda van de Kamp is a cultural anthropologist and assistant professor at the department of Sociology, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her research and teaching interests include the interplay between social transformations, local-global connections and cultural diversity in cities, and she currently focuses on how various cultural agents compete for and relate to space in urban renewal areas. From 2005 to 2010 Linda studied the growth of transnational religious movements in a city in transition, looking at the case of Brazilian Pentecostalism in Mozambique. From 2012-2014 her research engaged with the transnational circulation of (Afro-)Brazilian religious rituals and materials between Europe, Africa and Brazil. Linda’s work has been published and exhibited nationally and internationally. She was recently awarded a Veni grant (2015-2019) by the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme of the Netherlands’ Organisation of Scientific Research (NWO) for a project on ‘Yoga, Bingo and Prayer in Urban Renewal Areas’. Through anthropological field research in the north of Amsterdam, the project investigates how interaction between various groups of people influences urban renewal. She will analyze the dynamics between old and new inhabitants, entrepreneurs, artists, well fare workers, religious groups, housing corporations and authorities in dealing industrial heritage, collective rituals, and media and communication technology.
