In this episode, we talk to Yudith Namer who is a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Public Health at Bielefeld University (Germany). Our main topics are immigration, othering and health. We learn how Yudit has been combining her different professional roles as therapist, researcher, and teacher (PAST), we discuss an inspiring research article on immigration, discrimination, and health research among Mexicans in the United States (Viruell-Fuentes, 2007; PRESENT), and we talk about relational justice, relational ethics, and de-colonizing practices in research (FUTURE).

What is ReSearching Diversity?
Join a group of six women in social sciences in their aim to increase visibility of inspiring social scientists and of cutting-edge research focusing on ethnic, cultural, and migration-related diversity. Each episode two hosts invite one outstanding scientist to discuss their past (personal path into academia), the present (a research article that has recently inspired them in their work), and the future (recent developments and paradigm shifts in the world of academia and social sciences).
