Lotte Pelckmans


Lotte Pelckmans is an anthropologist who has been working on social mobility and status at the crossroads of (post-)slavery and migration studies, with a focus on francophone West Africa.

I studied and worked at Leiden University (Anthropology, African Studies Centre, Institute for History) and was associate professor at Nijmegen University (Anthropology and Development Studies). I obtained an EU co-fund scholarship for a year in French academia (CEAF, EHESS) and worked as a researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies (2015-2016), Copenhagen, Denmark.

I currently work as an external lecturer at the Institute for Advanced Migration Studies, Humanities, Copenhagen University, in combination with a research position in the project “Reading Slavery”, based at the department of Culture and Communication at Aarhus university. I am an editorial boardmember of the recently established, multilingual journal “Slavery and Post~Slavery” (CIRESC/CNRS).
