Episode 4: Privacy

In this episode Dr. Tessa Diphoorn and Dr. Brianne McGonigle-Leyh are joined by Prof. Dr. Jojanneke van der Toorn, an Associate Professor at Utrecht University and Professor by Special Appointment of International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Workplace Inclusion at Leiden University, and Dr. Martine Veldhuizen, who works at the department of Languages, Literature and Communication, to discuss the concept of ‘privacy’.

How do they use the concept of ‘privacy’ in their own research and how do they collaborate on the topic? What do people experience as private and what differences are there? And how is privacy used as a political tool?
