It was announced in late October 2019 that Otele had been appointed as the first Professor of the History of Slavery at Bristol University. She assumed her post in January 2020, and began a two-year research project to examine Bristol’s connection to the transatlantic slave trade.

Otele hopes that her appointment will ‘open the door for many hard-working women, especially black women in academia’. On her promotion Otele commented that “any success that is used only to improve one’s own life is a waste of possibilities. That is why being the first black female history professor does not mean anything to me if I’m not given and can’t find means to bring others up.” Otele also highlighted the difficulties she encountered in becoming a Professor: “I’ve worked very hard and kept pushing and had a family…It’s hard. I’m tired. It’s bleak.” The Vice-Chancellor of Bath Spa University, Professor Susan Rigby described Otele as “world-class and internationally respected”. Otele announced her promotion from her active Twitter account.

Otele was named on the BBC 100 Women 2018 List which celebrates influential and inspiring women from around the world. She appears at number 69, alongside Abisoye Ajayi-Akinfolarin, Nimco Ali and Uma Devi Badi.


Otele has participated in several major research grants looking at the African diaspora. She looks at the way the societies of Britain and France address citizenship. She has studied the Atlantic slave trade. Otele was the Principal Investigator for the project People of African Descent in the 21st Century: Knowledge and Cultural Production in Reluctant Sites of Memory, which received £24,022 in funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
