Intersectionality in research with Fatima and Benafsha

Many of us in the Humanities research in areas we are passionate about because of personal experiences and interests. Managing bias means acknowledging and accounting for this - not ignoring it. It's not always easy and sometimes it's joyous. In this episode I talk to two young Muslim women of colour who research in violent extremism. These are important voices and we're pleased to share them with you.
