Calixthe Blain

Hi! My name is Calixthe and I am a third year PPE student. My political interests are very diverse. I am mostly interested in questions of international migration and terrorism. I enjoy learning about how our perception of political issues can evolve and become manipulated.

My main areas of interest are comparative politics and security studies. Specifically, I am interested in the role growing economies have in shaping the international system and comparing the foreign policies of world powers.

Hi, I’m Katie and I’m a fourth year Politics, Philosophy and Economics student. An interdisciplinary approach to political issues is what interests me most and Juncture is an amazing journal for this. Some of my other favoured topics are development, corruption, and education.


Lily Cheetham

Hi, my name is Lily and I’m a final year Politics and Social Anthropology student. I have many political interests, such as terrorism and the Global Economy. I find the interdisciplinary nature of my course to be very interesting as I am able to look at political events from an anthropological perspective.

Sarah Shields

Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm currently in my third year studying Politics and Spanish.

My main areas of interest within politics include political theory, feminism and the effects of capitalism, particularly neoliberalism. I am excited to research further how these topics relate to wider political systems and society as well as how they interfere with the politics of mental health.
