Welcome to my personal website. My name is Inge van Nistelrooij. I am a mother and partner, care ethicist, dialogical self theorist, and book fan. This site offers information about the concept of liminality that is central to my work, my publications and presentations, me and my fields of interest, and about how to get in touch.
Over the past few years, many have asked me to clarify what I mean with self-sacrifice, as I have published about this, drawing upon my PhD study. Sometimes I feel that it is more urgent to explain what it is not and why I think it is a meaningful and relevant concept. I am afraid that those who ask a brief, clear cut answer, are let down. For my entire view everybody will need to read my book. But for those who want a first entry, I have created this page.
