Dr. Iris Beau Segers

Her current research focuses on the European far right, with a specific focus of the role of the politics of knowledge in far-right mobilization against gender.

Iris B. Segers was a researcher on the DRIVE project until March 2023. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Gender Research (STK) and the Centre for Research on Extremism (C-REX) at the University of Oslo. She acquired her PhD in media and communication at the University of Oslo in 2020. In her PhD dissertation, she explores the role of local contextual drivers and practises of storytelling in mobilising asylum seekers in diverse urban spaces. The research outputs of her PhD have been published in the book Mobilisation against Asylum Seekers in Contemporary Urban Spaces, which is part of the Routledge Mobilisation Series on Social Movements, Protest, and Culture. Iris’ work combines research methods such as interviews and quantitative and qualitative analyses of digital media and explores far-right mobilisation through a variety of theoretical perspectives from the fields of media studies, sociology, gender studies, and political science.
