Dr Katalin Halász

In the role of POP PD (2020) Katalin Halász worked predominantly on Work Package 2 (WP2): Mapping across theme. She was involved in initial qualitative analysis of the POP dataset generated in WP1: Mapping across time. She left POP to run her own Leverhulme funded research project at Brunel University.

Katalin has a PhD in Visual Sociology from Goldsmiths. She has held teaching positions at Brunel, City and Goldsmiths. Her research is on racialization, whiteness, theories of affect and bodies, gender, feminism and antiracism. 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).
