Our PhD students
Art history and visual studies
Christina Tente - I research visual cultures of the COVID-19 pandemic through media photography, non-human photography, and photo-based memes produced between January 2020 and March 2021 in order to facilitate an understanding of how the first year of the pandemic has been visually narrated, encoded/decoded, and - ultimately- experienced as a primarily visual and, to a large extend, disembodied event.
Anders Westerström - In my thesis project, I intend to track urban development in the waterfront district of Masthuggskajen in Gothenburg over time. I am interested in how the concept of sustainability is being applied in the project and how this is affecting the actors taking part in the processes and negotiations associated with the area.
Sama Khosravi Ooryad - My project critically examines antifeminist, online hate cultures and their global manifestations beyond the oversimplified West/East or democratic/undemocratic divide. I also study the anti-fascist, digital feminist networks and strategies that counter hate both offline and online.
Arman Heljic - My Ph.D. project investigates how Romani feminist and queer art, cultural production and artistic practices challenge notions about Romani communities in Europe. I focus on art as a form of resistance and art as spaces for counternarratives towards anti-ziganist and homo/lesbo/bi/transfobic representations that impact the lives of Romani LGBTQ individuals.
