About Katharina Kehl


My research focusses on questions of gender, sexuality and migration, and the othering of groups and individuals along these lines. In my dissertation, I look at the ways in which gender and sexuality are being used in European migration discourses to selectively include and exclude minorities, and the implication this has for LGBTQIA* people, those who are racialised, and queer-feminist movements. 

Areas of Interest

  • queer theory and queer methodology 
  • sexualities/subjectivities
  • borders/spaces/bodies
  • othering/inclusions/exclusions
  • feminist theory and feminist research
  • critical security studies

I teach on courses about global gender studies, migration, and development studies.
