Yorim completed an interdisciplinary BA at University College Maastricht and National Taiwan University followed, after a year of travels across Eurasia, by a MA in Global Studies (University of Freiburg, JNU New Delhi, UCT Cape Town). His thesis critically engaged with the problematique of voice in writing a history of Indian Ocean sailors in European employ during the Age of Sail. During the process of research he became interested in connected histories of the early modern period and he is very excited to pursue his main research interests in the context of the Global History Program in Berlin: Histoire croisée, colonial elites, aesthetic constellations, history of emotions, global micro-history and travelogues.
