Research Output per year
My research interest is guided by the question: how are Christian traditions transformed and continued in ecclesial contexts, in secular spheres and on the boundaries between the religious and the secular?
Currently, I am working on three projects:
1) The development of fluid ways of being church.
2) The organizational dynamics of spiritual care, in particular prison chaplaincy.
3) The construction of Catholic Social Teaching and its contribution to and critique of capitalism.
4) The use of religious heritage in popular culture, in particular comics and events.
