Leslie   Vandeputte

Assistant Professor
College of Education
the American University in the Emirates (United Arab Emirates)

I have a Ph.D. in Social Anthropology from the School for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences of Paris (EHESS, France) and a Master in Sociology and Anthropology earned at Paris Sorbonne University. Through my research, I am dedicated to producing better understanding of social identification especially how they work through language practices.

My analytic angle is at the crossroads of different disciplines: linguistic anthropology, social anthropology, sociology, political anthropology.

I worked for four years at the University of New Caledonia (2014-2018) and then three years at The American University in the Emirates.
