Passionate and driven by a never-ending curiosity, Jana Goyvaerts loves to examine our society and the role media play in it today. While studying communication studies, she was triggered by how discourses shape the way we see the world, and how it influences how we think and act. Her PhD research at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel focuses on ‘populism’, and what we mean when we talk about it.
