  • Curriculum Vitae

    After finishing my studies in Geography, Social and Cultural Anthropology and African Studies at the University of Cologne (2013), I started a PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology and have been a scholarship holder at the a.r.t.e.s. International Graduate School for the Humanities in Cologne. In my dissertational project - provisionally entitled Longing to Become – On Gendered Identities and Mobilities Between Senegal and China, supervised by Prof. Dorothea Schulz - I focus on the transnational dimensions of Senegalese female migrants’ socio-economic trajectories in the city of Guangzhou. Besides my PhD, I work as a trainer for intercultural skills for ESE e.V. (Ethnologie in Schule und Erwachsenenbildung) in Münster and have been interested in the intersection of art, anthropology and activism.

    Research Interests:
    Transnational migration and mobility, gender, intersectionality
