OxPol Blogcast showcases research, analysis, insights, and experiences from the members of the University of Oxford’s Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR), and specialist guests from the Oxford academic community and beyond.
On this episode of the OxPol Blogcast, host Anastasia Bektimirova is joined by Marta Antonetti, a DPhil Politics researcher at the University of Oxford’s Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR). Marta guides us through her research on the effect of having diverse role models in politics on widening political participation among the underrepresented groups. We also discuss what it means to take an intersectional approach in social science research, and why it is important.
