Ekaterina Rozanova is a PhD candidate, (fractional) lecturer and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She teaches in the field of international relations.

Her current PhD research focuses on culture as a resource for soft power with the cultural program of the European Union as her case study. This interdisciplinary research interest in the politicization of culture and the arts arose out of her academic background in international relations and art history. Furthermore, she presents papers on masculinities and conflict. Her additional recent research is in the field of teaching and learning in higher education. She also conducts ongoing studies on religion and Islam.
