Luka Fleuren is a student at University College Maastricht (UCM). At UCM, she has an interdisciplinary concentration that combines the Humanities and Social Sciences. More specifically, her academic interests lie in the fields of gender studies and cultural studies. She is particularly fascinated by the social construction of markers of difference such as race, sexuality, and gender, and how these shape people’s sense of self and other. In the process of completing her bachelor degree, she has also spent one semester studying at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.
