Curving Normality is an academic website and blog maintained by Rense Nieuwenhuis. Rense is employed as a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Twente. At the Institute for Innovation and Governance Studies (IGS) I work on my thesis, with the working title: The (in)compatibility of women’s fertility and employment in OECD countries, 1970-2000. Curving Normality is a platform for sharing a variety of my activities and interests. Academic life is full of events worth sharing. Also, I blog about some of the papers and books I read for research, and maintain a short list of selected data.
