In the Diggit Profiles, we engage in a conversation with junior and senior scholars whose work reflects and speaks to the issues we like to highlight on Diggit Magazine. We interview scholars from all over the world, inquiring into the issues they address in their work, the social relevance of their work, its public character and impact. The result is a series of interviews in which interviewees get ample space and time to talk about what is fundamental for them, and for us.
