Short and sweet: that's how the MPIDR researchers Mine Kühn and Diego Alburez-Gutierrez present the topics they have been investigating for years in two videos.

Outside it is gray and rainy. But the conference room of a hotel in Rostock is shining in brightest spotlight. Videos are being shot. Mine Kühn and later Diego Alburez-Gutierrez are sitting in front of the camera. The two scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) answer questions about their field of research. A video team from the science platform Latest Thinking interviews both.

Now, in late April the results are published. In an entertaining video, Mine Kühn describes her research interest in single parents’ health and the importance of longitudinal data in examining dynamics of single parent episodes. Diego Alburez-Gutierrez reports on his field research in Guatemala. There, he collected data on the genocide of the indigenous Maya Achi people and then evaluated it. Both videos can be watched online for free and may be distributed under a Creative Commons license.
