Dr. Tricia Van Dyk

Tricia Van Dyk successfully defended her doctoral dissertation in Amsterdam on March 17, earning her PhD in the conjoint degree program offered by ICS and the VU University Amsterdam. The dissertation is titled “Narrative Companionship: Philosophy, Gender Stereotypes, and Young Adult Literature.” Her ICS supervisor, Lambert Zuidervaart, describes it as “an evocative and lucid reflection on the challenges of embracing genuine plurality in a social-media-saturated and economically globalized world.” ICS extends warm congratulations to Dr. Tricia Van Dyk and her family.
