My principal research interests lie in the field of modern gender and migration history in francophone West Africa. My current research offers a historical overview of emancipation strategies in the context of the end of slavery in Africa. I analyse how slave resistance, rebellions and mobility disrupted supposedly fixed relations of gender and power hierarchies leading to complex renegotiations for kinship, marriage, religious practices and, more generally, for notions of belonging in Mali and Senegal.
