Lennie Geerlings is a PhD Candidate at the Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology at Leiden University, and at the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies (KITLV). She has a background in anthropology, sociology and psychology, and a MPhil in Interdisciplinary Studies from James Cook University in Singapore. Her research interests include the social effects of movements of people and ideas. She previously conducted a critical study of the cross-cultural application of psychology methods among children in Namibia. She also analysed how academic knowledge is constructed as universally applicable in higher education in Singapore, Australia, and the Netherlands. Lennie’s previous work engagements include providing seminars and lectures for the undergraduate liberal arts and psychology programs in Singapore.
Lennie's ethnographic study focuses on the lived experiences of female migrants in Singapore through the embodiment of difference. The research shows how migrant women encounter social processes of inclusion and exclusion that are inscribed, mediated, performed, and contested through their bodies.
