Front Desk:



Kim Knibbe is Associate Professor Anthropology and Sociology of Religion. In her work, she focuses on theorizing religion and culture inductively, based on ethnographic research, in pluralistic contexts. She has recently completed the 5 year project "Sexuality, Religion and Secularism" (funded by NWO). Apart from developing further publications based on that project, she is conducting exploratory research and publications on the role of religion and everyday ethics in pregnancy as a socio-cultural process. Previous research focused on Catholicism and spirituality in the Netherlands and on Nigerian Pentecostalism in Europe and the Netherlands. She has also published a series of theoretical and methodological reflections on studying religion. For students: I only accept supervision of projects that employ qualitative research methods. I particularly welcome students who wish to do research on contemporary spirituality, Catholicism or Pentecostalism related to questions of work and/or gender/sexuality/pregnancy and birth.
