Anastasia Kanjere is a PhD candidate and recipient of the David Myers scholarship in the Gender, Sexuality and Diversity Studies Program at La Trobe University, Melbourne. Her doctoral research traces the role of image and representation in the production and maintenance of racial hierarchies. In particular, it seeks to analyse the interrelation between whiteness as an ideological sphere and discourses of innocence, and the implications of this link for anti-racist work and theory.

Her research interests include critical race and whiteness studies, critical border studies, continental philosophy, culture studies, motherhood, vulnerability and (in)security, and critical childhood studies.
