Research Interests

I am interested in questions of social accommodation. How are social groups -cultural, religious or bodily- different groups- handled in terms of institutional and attitudinal accommodation by states and society? And how do societies and for example municipalities herein change as a result? In my approach to these questions, I combine historical, institutional, comparative analysis with discourse analytic and genealogical approaches. Furthermore, as a comparative political scientist, I have a strong interest in social and political theory, yet as explored through concrete praxis. 

My doctoral thesis looked at burial practices. It compared the ways in which three secular states, France, The Netherlands and Norway give form to religious diversity in the cemetery, and how they handled the accommodation of Muslims and humanist burial needs, specifically. I used this empirical analysis as a prism to talk about theories of secularism, religious governance and the role of religion in the public domain, more broadly conceived.                                                                                                                  

My current research addresses diaconal and welfare state care practices. Through a study of family experiences with care for congenital deafblind children in The Netherlands and Norway, I analyze the construction of what I claim is a historically new form of disability governance: governance by means of ‘the disability family’. Through this heuristic I provide an informed assessment of the complicated care situation in which the modern welfare state places them. Furthermore, this heuristic allows for a historical interrogation of the interplay between Christian Diaconia and shifting welfare regimes in the governance of disability, and the care for persons with deaf-blindness, specifically.
