Corona Cooking Survey
The COVID19 virus, as you have no doubt experienced, is changing many aspects of our everyday lives, including the way we eat. Against the backdrop of these changes, the “Food, Media & Society (FOOMS)” team at the University of Antwerp has created a survey to investigate how these changes affect the way people interact with food and food-related media. Our aim is to uncover these changes in cooking habits, skills and media.

The German Vegan Study is the first social science quantitative survey in which 852 people who eat vegan were interviewed about different attitudes and motives in an online survey.
Gender-specific Aspects of Food Choices
As “omnivores” people are theoretically able to eat all different sorts of food but in practice this is not the case. With a huge and sometimes confusing variety of food on offer, it is absolutely necessary to make choices. In the context of changing patterns in how men and women adopt roles, gender-specific factors of food choice are tremendously important. Food choices influence nutrition and are therefore relevant not only for one’s own health, but also for the health of one’s family members and/or children.
Cultures of Victimology: understanding processes of victimization across Europe / Cost Action 18121
Victimology as an academic endeavour has shown a remarkable growth in the past decades, and although victims are no longer the ‘forgotten party’ of the criminal justice system, the increased attention has been both topically and geographically lopsided. Victims of certain forms of criminal behaviour (domestic and sexual violence for instance) have commanded the lion’s share of academic and policy interest, and the research on victim’s experience is mainly conducted in North America, Oceania and North-West Europe. This results in more rapid advances in certain areas of victimology, while elsewhere basic victimological questions have yet to receive an answer.
