David ten Cate - Editor-in-Chief and Treasurer
David is a Media and Culture alumnus and a first-year RMA Media, Art and Performance Studies student. He’s been on the Editorial Board since October 2018 and wonders how long he’s going to stick around. His primary interests in the field of media studies are new media philosophy, aesthetic theory, ecomedia and critical theory. He also has a BA in History and carries his experience in that field to initiate political discussions in editorial meetings, even (and especially) if no one asks for it. David has been BLIK’s Treasurer since late 2018 and took over as Chief Editor in March of 2020, which apparently led to global catastrophe.
Dominique de Wilde - Secretary and Web Editor
Dominique is a third-year Media and Culture student who joined the editorial of BLIK in September 2019. Within the Media and Culture program, she chose the ‘in-depth package’ (verdiepingspakket) comparative media studies because she thinks it is important to develop her knowledge in a broad sense. Dominique is especially interested in the social and anthropological aspects of Media and Culture. Besides this, she is also interested in philosophy and psychology and how all these fields might supplement one another. Dominique fulfills the role of Secretary on the board and recently also took the role of Web Editor.
