Personal profile



Dr Charlotte Sanders is Senior Research Associate on the ESRC/UKRI funded project, 'Homelessness during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Homeless Migrants in a Global Crisis'.

Charlotte holds a PhD in Arab & Islamic Studies from the University of Exeter, following doctoral research which analysed the relationships between space, race and (disrupted) belonging amongst Sudanese women in Portsmouth. Broadly, Charlotte’s research focuses on the sociology of migration and thinks critically about both experiences and infrastructures of im/mobility at the intersection of feminist, socialist, critical race and decolonial theory.

Outside of the academy, Charlotte has worked with the British Red Cross supporting refugee settlement and has drawn upon her study of Arabic in providing interpreting and translation support to refugees navigating welfare, work and public services in Portsmouth.
