Joke D’Heer holds a master’s degree in Communication Sciences, graduating in Journalism Studies. She started her PhD project (BOF) in October 2018, which studies gendered representations of women politicians in Belgian news, taking the views of politicians and journalists into account. By using an intersectional perspective, she investigates the (often subtle) ways power may play a role in gendered news content, as well as in the processes prior to it. She is also a member of the Centre for Research on Culture and Gender (CRCG) and the Centre for Journalism Studies (CJS).
