Chloë Delcour temporarily works as a teacher at the Sociology Department at Ghent University. She mainly teaches master courses in political sociology. She obtained her PhD in Sociology at Ghent University in September 2018. In 2010-2011, she obtained her Master in Sociology at the same university. Her thesis was awarded the 2010-2011 Marthe Versichelen Prize for the best master thesis in sociology.
In the first two years of working at Ghent University (2011-2013), Chloë Delcour was a teaching assistant at the Sociology Department. From 2013 to 2018, she worked as a doctoral fellow of the Research Foundation-Flanders. Her doctoral research was situated within sociology of human rights and aimed to analyze the constructions of human rights by different actors (juridical, political, activist, media). More specifically, the research focused on the constructions made within newspaper debates that arose in the aftermath of human rights violations. These violations were cases of unlawful evictions of Roma migrants. Roma migrants form an interesting group to study in terms of human rights constructions, because their human rights are still strongly contested.
Chloë’s current research interests remain focused on human rights, migration and the media. In particular, she would like to develop new research on human rights and citizenship education, inclusion and discrimination of migrants, and production and consumption of media discourse.
