Resumo CV
Joana Catela obtained a bachelor's degree in Social Anthropology at FCSH-NOVA, a master¿s degree in Latin American Studies at the University of Cambridge and a post-graduate certificate in Anthropology of Health from ISCTE-IUL. In 2018 Joana was awarded a PhD in Anthropology also at ISCTE-IUL for her thesis entitled "On the margins and in transit: mental health and good intentions in an IPSS in the suburbs of Lisbon", based on intensive fieldwork at a rehousing neighbourhood. Her main research interests focus, among others, on issues related to urban anthropology, medical anthropology, immigration, mental health, housing, vulnerability and relationships between humans and non-humans, topics on which he has published and participated in scientific conferences , both nationally and internationally. Joana Catela joined ICS as a Post-Doctoral Researcher to support the project "exPERts: Making sense of planning expertise: housing policy and the role of experts in the Programa Especial de Realojamento (PER)". During 2019 she has conducted a multi-sited ethnography in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area (Cascais and Alta de Lisboa) focused both on the enactment of municipal workers' expertise and on the effects of PER in the rehoused community. Since the end of the exPERts project, Joana Catela has remained an active member of both the Urban Transitions Hub and the Human-Animal Studies Hub at ICS-ULisboa, collaborating in various activities promoted by these centres: for example, she was invited to taught the seminar "The therapeutic animal" in the postgraduate course Animals and Society; she is part of in the organisation committee of the workshop "Thinking and Researching Urban Futures amid a Pandemic"; and she is also enrolled in the monthly reading sessions of both groups, and part of the organising team of the first. In July 2020 Joana Catela was integrated as a postdoctoral researcher in project "SPLACH - Spatial Planning for Change" (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-016431) financed by European Structural and Investment Funds (FEEI) through the Competitiveness and Internationalisation Operational Program (COMPETE 2020) in its ERDF component and by national funds through the Foundation for Science and Technology in its OE component, with PEP 23Z02000220210, taking place at Dinâmia'CET, ISCTE-IUL. Joana Catela has carried out remote and digital ethnographic research with producers and distributors of organic farming baskets in the Metropolitan Area of Lisbon in order to contribute to a better understanding of urban planning and the current food system, reflecting on issues before and after the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on this research project, she has participated in the Global Food Systems in Local Contexts: Understanding Contemporary Food Systems Through Time Symposium and her participation in the international conference SIEF 2021 has already been confirmed, with a presentation entitled "Food baskets in the city: how small agriculture businesses can contribute to our understanding of what ethnography is". She has also submitted an article in co-authorship to the journal "Cities, Communities and Territories" and is currently writing two more focused on her current research. Before having completed her PhD in 2018, Joana Catela has worked for Junta de Freguesia da Estrela, one of Lisbon's local authorities, where she was responsible for developing projects anchored in local needs and capacities. This passage through the local administration allowed her to contact with the reality and the difficulties in the implementation of programs and with the challenges of governance. She has remained engaged with social and political actors, but also with a wider audience. She has taught Anthropology and Development in 2018 and has participated in the 2020 online edition of the European Researchers Night.
