Catherina Wilson

I studied African Studies in Gent and in Leiden. I am part of the Connecting In Times of Duress team at Leiden University and I am currently writing a dissertation on mobility and identity among Central African refugees in DR Congo (Sud-Ubangi and Kinshasa). I have carried out previous research in Kisangani, DR Congo, on urban youth languages.

Fields of interest: processes of identity forming, anthropological linguistics, urban popular culture in Africa and mobility.
