Carine Plancke

Carine Plancke is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Dance Research, University of Roehampton, and an Associate Member of the Laboratoire d’anthropologie sociale, Collège de France, Paris. After a PhD on song and dance practices in rural Punu society (Congo-Brazzaville), she now conducts research on dance performances in contemporary Rwanda within the framework of a postdoctoral project funded by a Fernand Braudel-FMSH fellowship. More specifically, she examines the revitalisation of ‘traditional’ dances and the creative processes of transformation within the post-genocide context of the construction of a ‘New Rwanda’.

She has published a monograph Flux, rencontres et émergences affectives : pratiques chantées et dansées chez les Punu du Congo-Brazzaville (Presses Universitaires du Mirail, Collection ‘Les Anthropologiques’, 2014) and numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals such as Journal des Africanistes, Africa, Journal of Religion in Africa,Social Analysis, Anthropologie et Sociétés, Journal of Ritual Studies and Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute.
