Lexi Eikelboom

researches the significance of rhythm in order to improve our understanding of the ways in which theory, belief, materiality, and culture are connected. Rhythm is a category that allows us to simultaneously deal with the poles of space and time, pattern and variation, individual embodiment and socio-political connections. It is therefore an ideal category for the study of theology and religion, which encompass all of these dimensions.
