As a senior researcher and main coordinator Bart is affiliated to the Articulation of Modernity Project. This four-year project is funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). It focuses on societal change through the prism of popular music, emphasizing the appeal of modernity rather than that of the nation-state, thus offering a new way of studying Southeast Asia that foregrounds the movement of people, music, ideas, and technologies among the region’s cosmopolitan centres.

Together with Dr. Ariel Heryanto (Australian National University) Bart is editor of Southeast Asia Mediated, a 'KITLV Verhandelingen series' that is published by Brill Publishers.
