Andreja Zevnik joined Politics DA in January 2012 as a Lecturer in International Politics. Andreja holds a PhD (2011) and MScEcon in International Relations Theory (2007) from Aberystwyth University and MA in International Relations and MA in Political Theory and Analysis, both from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia (2006).
Andreja's research is inspired by psychoanalysis, continental philosophy, critical race studies and aesthetic politics and mainly focuses on the production of subjectivity in acts of resistance. Her most recent research examines how the experience of anxiety alters forms of political participation, produces different political/resisting subjectivities and moulds new political realities. She's particularly interested in struggles associated with the civil rights movement in the US and different Black Lives Matter initiatives. She recently published a monograph entitled Lacan, Deleuze and World Politics: rethinking the ontology of the political subject (Routledge, 2016), a research article on 'Post-racial society as social fantasy; in Political Psychology (2017) and co-edited collections such as Jaces Lacan between psychoanalysis and politics (Routledge, 2015), Lacan and Deleuze: a disjunctive synthesis (Edinburgh University Press, 2017) and Politics of Anxiety (Rowman and Littlefield Int). She is a member of APSA and ISA.
