About Jonna Håkansson

I am MA in Gender Studies, and working as a Research Assistant in the project: Gender Equality and Increased Energy efficiency in the Transport Sector (Swedish Energy Agency), where I contribute with knowledge on feminist theory and intersectionality.

My main fields of interest are:

  • Intersectional and non-anthropocentric perspectives on climate change, environmental problems and social injustice
  • Critical Animal Studies
  • Feminist theory, especially intersectionality, Decolonial Feminism, and Feminist Affect Theory
  • Critical Posthumanism  

I am one of the initiators to the cross-disciplinary network GU-CAS: Gothenburg University’s Network for Critical Animal Studies in the Anthropocene. GU-CAS puts human-animal relations at the center in exploring novel approaches to environmental problems, social injustice and climate change.

 

Education:

MA in Gender Studies at University of Gothenburg (2018), including courses in Education for Sustainable Development.  

BA in Gender Studies at University of Gothenburg (2016), including courses in Human Ecology, and Power, Resistance and Change.
