“It’s different being a man or a woman doing research”

Helena Machado was the protagonist of the first 2018 doctoral seminar in Communication Sciences and Cultural Studies. She spoke on “Technological surveillance systems in the European Union: methodological and ethical challenges”, framing the theme in the project of which she is responsible researcher, “Exchange – Forensic Geneticists and the Transnational Exchange of DNA data in the EU: Engaging Science with Social Control, Citizenship and Democracy”. In addition, she stressed that her intervention would serve to “share the methodological and ethical challenges that have to do with the geopolitical and gender object of study”.
