My name is Seulgie (Claire) Lim and I am currently a PhD candidate in political science at Boston University, MA. When I am not stressing out writing and finishing my disseration, I pretend to do other productive things, such as exercising (running) and knitting, as well as other non-productive things, such as watching Netflix and/or listening to podcasts.

Gender and Politics
Religion & Politics
My research is on the gender parity law in Senegal, which was voted in 2010 and which allowed women to take over 40% of the seats in the national assembly. My dissertation focuses on the consequences of this law in the country, mostly at the societal level, while trying to place the law and the movement that led to it in the bigger framework of a feminist discourse.
