Visiting researchers: the comeback!
- New visitings in Sciences Po - OSC (February 2022)
Following many months of break due to the Covid pandemic, we are very pleased to welcome this year our three first Visiting colleagues.
Léa Pessin is an assistant professor of Sociology and Demography at the Pennsylvania State University, where she is also affiliated with the Population Research Institute. Her research focuses on the unequal consequences of the gender revolution on women’s work and family outcomes across class, race-ethnicity, and geographic contexts. During her stay at OSC, she will collaborate with Zachary Van Winkle on joint projects revolving around the intersectional consequences of work and family life courses in comparative perspective.

Anna Carolina Venturini is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Brazilian Center of Analysis and Planning – CEBRAP's International Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Program (IPP). She received a Ph.D. in Political Science at the Institute for Social and Political Studies – IESP of the Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ) in 2019. In 2017 she was a visiting fellow at Harvard University.
Her research interests lie at the intersections of affirmative action and public policies, race, ethnicity, gender, and institutional change. She uses mixed methods, including primary surveys and in-depth qualitative interviews.
At OSC, Venturini is working on a comparative study about the affirmative action policies implemented by Sciences Po (Conventions Éducation Prioritaire, studied by Marco Oberti) in France and the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil. The goal is to understand the policies' formulation and implementation processes over the last years, looking at patterns of institutional change and identifying differences and similarities concerning social and racial inclusion.
