Performing power at the dining table. Culinary networks at the Belgian royal court in the nineteenth century.

Project Details


My Ph.D. research is financed within the scope of the GOA-Humanities entitled (European cultures and identity. convergence and diversity in eating habits, 1800-2000'. My employment within the research project ends on December 31st, 2009. I will defend my thesis in October/November 2009. The application at hand concerns a postdoctoral position ("postdoctoral opvangmandaat") of one year. this mandate would give me the opportunity to validate my Ph. D. research through scientific publications (one book, and the preparation of at least two papers for peer-reviewed, international journals). Moreover, it would allow me to prepare applications for new research projects, with both the FWO and international bodies. Finally, it would enable me to continue publishing and to remain active within the academic sphere, contributing to all activities of the research group FOST (lectures, website editing, organisation of sessions at international colloquia, et cetera).
The application at hand offers an insight into the scientific output that has been established during my doctoral research, as well as into the scientific possibilities that the 'postdoctoraal opvangmandaat' would offer while external postdoctoral financing.
