Beatriz Revelles

I received my degree on English Language and Literature in 2008 at the University of Granada, my Master Erasmus Mundus on Women’s and Gender Studies on 2010 at the Universities of Granada and Utrecht and my PhD degree in 2014 on the Information and Communication society at the IN3, in the Open University of Cataluña. I was a visiting scholar at Rutgers University in 2009 in the Department of Women and Gender Studies, at University of Santa Cruz (California) in the department of Feminist Studies in 2014 and at the Manchester Metropolitan University in the MYRIAD Institute in 2015.

My main line of research is gender and Communications, which covers also how women perceive their reality and express it within the context of the present knowledge society. That is why, I am very interested in how academic careers and the meritocratic system affect women’s lives and the creation of knowledge itself. Appart from this, I also conduct research on social media and literature as key factors of communication; as well as how to teach these disciplines in the context of the university following the feminist contemporary theory of new materialism.

I am part of the European COST Action IS1307: Networking European New Materialism: How matter comes to matter; borrad member of the European Association of women’s Studies and Docuemtnation Atgender; and also participated in other research funded projects such as GENTALENT.

In September 2014 ‘The New Materialist Methodologies: The Gender, Politics, the Digital‘ and currently organizing Bridging Gender Research and Policy Making: Missing Links, Good Practices, Future Scenarios (Vilnius, LT, April 19-21, 2017)
