Anastasia Kanjere is a PhD candidate and recipient of the David Myers scholarship in the Gender, Sexuality and Diversity Studies program.
Her PhD, 'Whiteness and the myth of innocence: tracing a textual entanglement,' considers the role of image and representation in the production and maintenance of racial hierarchies. In particular, it interrogates the interrelation between whiteness as an ideological sphere and discourses of innocence, and the implications of this link for anti-racist work and theory. It was passed in 2019.
Other research interests include critical race and whiteness studies, critical border studies, settler colonial studies, continental philosophy, culture studies, motherhood, vulnerability and (in)security, and critical childhood studies.
