Welcome to my website. I’m a Dutch scholar in the area of religion, sexuality and gender. I work as Executive Secretary of the Netherlands School for Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion (NOSTER).
I have published in several journals, edited volumes, magazines, and newspapers, and I have co-edited four special journal issues. My fields of interest – and, who knows, expertise – are Augustinian Studies, Christian Ethics, Christology, Cultural Studies, Pastoral Theology, Queer Theology, Radical Theologies (esp. Radical Orthodoxy), and Religion and Secularism.
This website is mainly devoted to my academic work. Besides, the ‘Bureau Derks’ section provides information in Dutch about the professional services (editing, lecturing, translating, organising etc.) that I have offered over the years.
If you have questions of any kind, feel free to contact me.
