Welcome to the ReSearching Diversity podcast. With this podcast, we follow three main goals:

  1. to increase visibility of inspiring social scientists and of excellent research on ethnic, cultural, and migration-related diversity
  2. to offer an innovative, low-threshold teaching format to better connect to our higher education students’ realities
  3. to help our higher education students access current scientific discourses on diversity, equity, and inclusion

Who are we?

We are a community of early career women in social sciences. And that’s why we share a professional and personal interest in expanding existing stories about who can be a researcher.

Episode structure

Each episode, we invite one outstanding researcher to discuss the following three segments with us:


In this first personal section, we find out how the guest became a researcher and why they became interested in their research topic.

In the empirical section, we talk about one research article that has recently inspired our guest in their work or way of thinking.

In this final section, we discuss were we want to go from here. Which changes would we like to see in science and society with regard to diversity, representation, and equity?
