    Jana Cattien is Assistant Professor in Political and Social Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam. Her areas of specialisation are feminist philosophy, gender theory, critical race and postcolonial theory. Previously, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Lincoln, on the 'Suicide in/as Politics' project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust and led by Dr Amy Chandler (University of Edinburgh) and Dr Ana Jordan (University of Lincoln). She holds a PhD from SOAS, University of London (funded through a SOAS Research Studentship), an MPhil from the University of Cambridge, and a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Durham. 

    Jana is currently pursuing two research projects: on the metaphysics of (decolonising) statues (with Richard Stopford, University of Durham), and on anti-Chinese rhetoric and anti-mask discourse in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
