Dr Katalin Halasz
Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow


Katalin joined Brunel University as a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow in 2021. Her research project is on 'Affective whiteness: racializing Hungarian national identity '. Previously, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the Politics of Patents ERC funded research project at Goldsmiths, University of London. She has held teaching positions at City and Goldsmiths universities.

Katalin's research is on exploring the lived experience of race and gender. She is particularly interested in experimenting with arts-based and creative methods (performance, video, installation, screen-print, costume, 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).

More on her artful sociological research can be found on her website:
