Dra. Zanna Van Loon

Zanna Van Loon is a PhD student in History at the University of Leuven. Her master’s thesis dealt with the international trade of Christopher Plantin with Scottish and English clients (1555-1589), concerning the distribution networks, but also the book consumption, in an age of confessionalisation. At the moment she is working on a project which deals with the European circulation of knowledge regarding the indigenous languages of the New World (16h-18th century). The research is entitled ‘Evolving views on the world’s languages in a globalizing world (1540-1840): information growth, conceptual shifts, scholarly networks in the circulation of linguistic knowledge’, and she does so under the supervision of Werner Thomas, Toon Van Hal and Lieve Behiels.
