After the ceremony, we were able to sit down with her for a virtual interview to talk about topics such as the role of universities, the importance of the social sciences and collective participation in intellectual work, why it is so difficult to make the voices of the weakest heard, and masculinities and gender equality, a field in which she is a leading figure.
