ICCT Live Briefing and Battle Rhythm Podcast
Public engagement is more important than ever. I have had a couple of recent opportunities to present my research on gender and extremism in some new formats.
ICCT Live Briefing:
Participating in this multi-researcher panel on Gender and Violent Extremism Today, was a real treat! The panel discussion was very interesting and covered a broad range of orientations to the topic. As a bonus, I got to present alongside people I have long admired but often have panel conflicts at conferences because topical splits between Far-Right extremism and Jihadist extremism (so cool!). I highly recommend checking out the recording of the live stream (details below). My presentation focused on the construction of ideal masculinity in the Manosphere and Far-Right.

Battle Rhythm Podcast:
After my visit to Ottawa last December to present at the CDSN /RCDS Year Ahead 2020 Conference hosted by the NPSIA program at Carleton University, I was invited to record an interview for their podcast. It was a fantastic conversation and I really enjoyed participating. The discussion covers my work on extremism and my doctoral research - so it is a nice overview of my work!
