Presentation of research activity or teaching

The reseach project of Adina Mocanu deals with the female body in the Postcommunism Romanian literature and she is interested in themes such as sexuality, vulnerability, illness and violence. Her Phd thesis is supervised by:

- Helena González:
- Isabel Clúa:

Adina Mocanu participated in several projects at University of Barcelona, such as the "Literature and Communities: A Gendered Approach" project that aimed to reflect the "community" as a concept which creates identities, both at a personal level (the relationship between the individual and the group) and at a collective level (the borders between groups). Now she is part of the project: "New views on the community / New hybrid and sexualized Roma identities" and its goal is to analyze, from a gender and sexuality perspective, the role of these literary, artistic, and media discourses, as well as life stories, in the symbolic construction of the Roma communities. This project focuses especially on women and their bodies, in terms of those images and discourses that provide new visions of them and that are hybrid and sexualized.

Adina Mocanu has between 2 and 5 years of working experience in gender equality. Her researches are at European level.
