Biography

Selma Karolina Laman, född Karlsson den 29 juli 1862 i Östra Hargs socken, död 8 augusti 1936 i Stjärnorps församling, var en svensk missionär. Hon tillhörde den första generationen av kvinnliga missionärer som verkade på Svenska missionsförbundets (SMF) missionsfält i nuvarande provinsen Kongo-Central (tidigare Bas Congo/Nedre Kongo) i dåvarande Fristaten Kongo. Från 1908 blev namnet på landet Belgiska Kongo, numera heter det Kongo-Kinshasa/DRC. Selma Laman arbetade där under sammanlagt fem arbetsperioder mellan 1891 och 1919. Förutom de gängse arbetsuppgifterna för kvinnliga missionärer, såsom sjukvård och undervisning, deltog hon aktivt i sin make Karl Lamans språkvetenskapliga och etnologiska forskning.
