Presentation

My primary areas of research are connected to subdisciplines in systematic theology, primarily philosophy of religion, dogmatics and ethics. In my doctoral thesis I analysed the meaning-giving structures of religious language, understood both as communicative and theoretical medium. My subsequent work focused on theologies of sacrifice within the Christian tradition, in particular the ways in which different forms of violence are connected to notions of God, but also how these notions has given rise to notions of what a good human life consists in. Ethics of migration is the currently at the center of my research attention, focusing on the relationship between universal human rights and membership-specific rights grounded in state membership.
