Katalin Halász

Katalin has held teaching positions at Brunel, City and at Goldsmiths universities before joining the Politics of Patents ERC funded project as a Postdoctoral Fellow. Her research is on racialization, whiteness, theories of affect and bodies, gender, feminism and anti-racism. She is particularly interested in experimenting with arts-based methods (performance, video, installation, screen-print, cross-dressing, curation) to access the messiness of embodied experiences.

Katalin has staged a number of participatory and multimedia performances in Brazil, Bolivia, Denmark, Germany and the UK and curated the exhibitions Visualising Affect (UK, 2013) and The Future of Art is Urban – Artistic Research Practices and Methods in Social Sciences (UK, 2014).

She has been awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellowship at Brunel University (2021-2024) with a new research project entitled 'Affective whiteness: racializing Hungarian national identity'.
