IVSA Board Member
I’ve been an active member of IVSA since 2013 when I curated ‘Visualising Affect’, an international art exhibition in the framework of the IVSA 2013 Conference that was held at Goldsmiths, University of London: http://visualisingaffect.weebly.com/
I was awarded a PhD in Visual Sociology in 2019. Currently, I hold a Leverhulme grant at Brunel University London to conduct arts-based research on the affective racialization of national identity in Hungary. I have staged a number of participatory and multimedia performances in the UK, Denmark, Germany, Brazil and Bolivia and curated exhibitions in London. I am on the Editorial Board of Qualitative Research. More on my artful sociological research can be found here: https://www.katalinhalasz.com/
I have contributed to creative methods collections (‘Bloomsbury Handbook of Creative Research Methods’, 2023; ‘How To Do Sociology With …’, Goldsmiths Press, 2023) and am currently writing my first monograph, ‘Artful Sociology’, exploring the affective lived relations and embodied experience of race and gender through artistic research methods.
I will aim to contribute to expanding the use of creative and arts-based research methods by social scientists.
