Dr. Ekaterina Rozanova is a lecturer and fellow of the higher education academy.
Ekaterina joined the department in 2014 and teaches in the field of international relations. Her research focuses on soft power, international security, and the politicization of culture. She is interested in understanding the resources of soft power.

In particular, she explores the strategic employment of cultural as a resource for soft power. The research is framed within the strategic perspective of realism and considers both domestic and external security concerns.

Ekaterina’s research has an interdisciplinary nature crossing over into political communications, cultural policy and diplomacy, cultural studies, and the study of the creative and cultural industries. This interdisciplinary research interest arose out of her academic background in international security and art history. Additional research deals with masculinities and conflict; ir/religion and Islam.
