Food and meals

Food and meals are hot topics, in society and academic research alike. Over the last years, theologians and scholars in religious studies have rediscovered the ritual meals of Holy Supper/Eucharist as vital objects of research. In 2018, I co-edited and published the volume Rond de tafel. Maaltijd vieren in liturgische contexten that investigate these rituals from various perspectives. As a theologian I am most interested in questions around food and meal practices in daily life: how do we relate to the food we grow, import, eat, waste, the meals we cook and eat with other people, etcetera? I am currently developing a number of smaller projects that explore the various values of food and their interplay. Contact me when you are  interested to engage in research on this topic in any way!
