Dennis De Vriese

  • Research interest:

    Dennis De Vriese (1996) studied history at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (2014-2018). During these studies he focused on early modern history and the history of consumption. This resulted in 2018 in his masters’ thesis on the relationship between food and social inequality aboard the eighteenth-century Ostend Company ships. For this thesis he was awarded the De Bock-Doehaerd award 2018. In November 2018 he became a member of research groups FOST (Social and Cultural Food Studies) and HOST (Historical Research into Urban Transformation Processes) at the VUB, as part of his pre-doctoral research. Under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Wouter Ryckbosch, he delved into questions on naturalness, tradition and the quality of meat products during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as part of the interdisciplinary research program ‘Tradition and naturalness of animal products within a societal context of change’. In November 2019, he received a fellowship at the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) to pursue his PhD on the regulation of the urban meat market in late- and post-corporative Brussels. In this research, he focuses on changing regulation, its justifications and how both shaped the urban economy.
