l encounters between the residents of the New World and the Western colonialists. Hofman is known for her multidisciplinary approach in which she combines archaeology with, for example, isotope research, archeometrics, bio-archaeology, molecular biology, network analysis, ethnohistory and ethnography. With the combination of archaeology and network science Hofman is bringing about considerable innovation in the discipline.

Scientifically innovative and important for society

For years the archaeologist has called for the protection of the cultural heritage and the threatened soil archive of the Caribbean islands. Her contribution is not only scientifically innovative but also of fundamental societal importance. With her research, Hofman wants to contribute to capacity building, the historic awareness and the self-consciousness of the current population of the Caribbean region. A large part of her team comes from the Caribbean and in her research she works together with local stakeholders. She regularly invites school classes to excavation sites and she organises exhibitions and public lectures.

Hofman graduated as an archaeologist from Leiden University in 1987 and gained her PhD from the same university in 1993. Corinne Hofman has been Professor of Caribbean Archaeology since 2007. In addition she is an affiliate professor of the University of Florida. During her career she has received an Aspasia, a Vidi and a Vici grant from NWO and she was recently awarded a European HERA grant as well. Last year she received the KNAW-MERIAN prize for excellent female scientists who inspire young talent to pursue a career in science. Since September 2013, Hofman has been Dean of the Faculty of Archaeology at Leiden University. Furthermore, at the request of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Hofman is a member of the Netherlands National Commission for UNESCO.

Corinne Hofman was nominated by professor Gillis Dorleijn, chair NW
