Presentation of research activity or teaching

We have worked and developed during almost two years the project 'Digital narratives. Gender, inmigration and religion on the move'. The main goal of this research is to identify how inmigrant women in Raval district (Barcelona) use digital media to explore and analyse their online visibility but also their offline presence and social empowerment. We talked to 238 women from more than 10 different countries, cutlures and religions and we found great possibilities for technology to become a tool for women to integrate in their new societies and to achieve equality. World Association for Christian Communication and Otto per Mille Valdesian Church were our supporters. More information: www.womentechreligion.com

Populations targeted by research

The main target group of our researches are women. We analyze gender differences in terms of inmigration, integration, intercultural and interreligious dialogue. We also focus on women in our studies about youth and minoritary religious communities. The effect and potential use of new technologies for achieving women challenges and for supplying women needs are also subjects of our researches. Our long term goal is to contribute to solve gender gap in these specified subjects.
