What makes the “ness” in Geel?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleGeneral public


Distinctive doctrines of the Church, and their place in contemporary society, are at times, argued to bring about changes in the Arctic – the people, their land, and traditions. Could such be the case elsewhere in Western Europe? I recently travelled to Belgium, on a work trip for an EU project. There is a lot of curiosity about the destination’s culture, its people, and what makes the ‘ness’ in this destination – a suffix to indicate the meaningfulness of something.
