Doctorate in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies (interuniversity)


Program Description

Currently, gender is a field of innovation in science and technology. The Doctorate in Interdisciplinary Studies of Gender constitutes a novel bet in the Spanish university panorama, since it lacks precedents in the Spanish university. It is a proposal that responds to and meets the demand generated by the scientific policy developed, more than a decade ago, by the European Union and by Spanish legislation that requires, urgently and urgently, adequate training in the most high academic level. It is an interuniversity doctorate in which, apart from the Universidad de La Laguna , the University of Alicante, the University of Alcalá, the University of the Balearic Islands, the University of Huelva, the Jaume I University of Castellón, the University Rey Juan Carlos and the Autonomous University of Madrid, which is the University that coordinates the Doctorate Program.

The most recent research has shown how in many fields of scientific knowledge, from the humanities to medicine, through the social sciences and engineering, sex and gender variables are insufficiently considered. Stereotypes and biases persist in research and technological developments, which often build as a universal norm what are the realities, experiences and expectations of a group of people, mostly males, mostly white and of a certain economic level, and they consider the realities of other people as deviations from the norm. Science, like any other field of human activity, is not free from the cultural and social determinants of its time. Gender stereotypes, and the lower social value of women are often transferred to a stereotyped and lesser consideration of their specific realities, whether of a social or biological nature, in research.

In the last decades, gender studies have contributed to revealing and knowing hitherto unexplored areas of reality and also to reducing biases and errors in concepts and theories. In some cases, notably in the social sciences and humanities, they have contributed to important reformulations of the disciplinary foundations of some fields of knowledge. In other areas there is still much to be done and, to move forward, it is necessary to foster a fertile cross between gender studies and the rest of the fields of knowledge. Gender is, then, a clear field of innovation in science and technology.

After the signing of the Amsterdam Treaty of 1959, which established equality between men and women as a specific task of the European Community and as a transversal objective that affects all community tasks, the European Commission formalized its commitment to advance equality of gender in research: (European Commission (1999) Women and science: mobilizing women for the benefit of European research, Communication of the European Commission, Brussels). From here, the European Union has made it a priority to introduce gender into the contents of research, in its double version of, on the one hand, addressing the realities of both women and men and, on the other, promoting and Consider gender-specific research to fill gaps in knowledge. Thus, from the V and VI Framework Programs for Research of the EU, the gender perspective has been introduced. And with these same objectives the European Commission included in the VI Framework Program a requirement for gender analysis to be considered as one more variable, comparable to any other, whose relevance should be taken into account. Important research institutions in the USA, in the Scandinavian countries and in other European countries such as Austria also require the systematic consideration of gender and sex variables in the projects they finance. The United Nations, in its agreement on Science and Technology adopted in March 2011, also mentions the need to incorporate gender analysis into scientific research. The decision

adopted by the Seventh Framework Program for Research of the European Union establishes that the integration of the gender dimension and gender equality will be addressed in all areas of research (Decision nº 1982/2006 / Cede 18/12/1986, IJ L412 30/12 / 2006.p.1). And this same statement has been extended in the current Horizon 2020 Program, which considers gender as an analytical category across the whole research program.

In our country, the inclusion and promotion in the university and scientific policy of programs of formation, research and teaching of gender equality in a transversal way is present in all our most recent legislation: Organic Law 1/2004 on measures of integral protection against Gender Violence, Organic Law 3/2007 on Effective Equality of Women and Men, RD 1393/2007 establishing the organization of university education and the LOMLOU (Organic Law 4/2007). Likewise, the Strategic Plan for Equality of Opportunities 2008/2011, which was developed in 12 priority areas of action, also showed the opportunity to carry out university programs of gender study in accordance with national and community regulations. In this sense, Axis 4 (Innovation) is particularly relevant, which refers to mainstreaming, to the improvement of knowledge, to the prominence of women and to the feminization of science and technology. Aspects Spanish, published by the Women and Science Unit of the Ministry of Science and Innovation in 2011.

The recently approved law of Science and Technology of Spain contains an important article that influences these community and national demands: "the Spanish strategy of science and technology and the State plan for scientific and technical research will promote the incorporation of the gender perspective as a transversal category in research and technology, so that its relevance is considered in all aspects of the process, from the definition of research priorities, research problems, explanatory theoretical frameworks, methods, collection and data interpretation, conclusions, technological applications and development, and proposals for future studies ". In response to these requirements of current European and Spanish regulations, the National ID Program i incorporates since 2008 a specific manager that, responding to the acronym FEM, articulates transversally to all specific areas of knowledge, research in gender .

The current proposal for a Doctorate in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies would therefore respond to and satisfy the demand generated by this scientific policy developed for more than a decade by the European Union and by Spanish legislation and which requires, and urgently requires, training adequate at the highest academic level. Only such training focused on research will be able to provide the expert scientific analysis necessary for the consolidation of the mentioned scientific and research policies.

In this sense, the present proposal for a PhD in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies constitutes, on the one hand, an absolutely novel commitment in the Spanish university panorama, and on the other hand, a need derived from a long experienced training demand. It is novel because it lacks precedents in the Spanish university (in the international field there are only similar initiatives in the USA and in Italy); therefore, it would respond to a demand without any type of academic coverage at this time, which would support the strategic interest of the present doctorate in all the participating universities and centers. But, on the other hand, it also satisfies a formative demand that has long been endorsed by the renowned research and teaching trajectory of the Institutes, Seminars and research groups that support it, some of them with more than 25 years of existence, and that even this moment has only found a channel through other doctorates framed in specific disciplines (law, history, literature, etc .. You can see an example in this regard in the theses read in recent years on the subject of gender), but lacking until now of a proper disciplinary space. In this sense, the essential value of the title would reside in the opportunity to generate an own space, until now non-existent, for some studies that since the eighties of the last century have been reaffirming, first, in the curricular teaching of the degrees and degrees, and later, in postgraduate and master's degrees adapted to the European Higher Education Area, present in a notable majority of the universities participating in the current program, and which already require their own space in the Doctorate, as evidenced by the abundant reading and defense of theses on gender issues carried out in recent years in different Spanish university departments and institutes, of which a brief relation (only up to 10) is offered in this same document. Since the mid-80s research and teaching on gender issues has been one of the key points of the strategic interest of Universities such as the Autonomous University of Madrid, the Jaume I of Castellón, the University of Alicante, the University of Huelva, and the University of Alicante. Balearic Islands. It has also been since its inception in the younger participating universities such as the Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid. In all of them, important research teams (Vid. Human Resources) base the quality and timeliness of this doctoral program.

In this sense, one of the main strengths of this program lies in its interdisciplinary nature. In fact, although in the header of this document, due to the technical limitations of the computer application, only one ISCED thematic code option appears, the Doctoral program in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies covers topics related to the social, legal and human sciences and health (see lines and research teams). This interdisciplinary nature is not a capricious option, but rather responds to the fact that the objectives of the doctoral program are part of the promotion of gender equality demanded by European Community policies, national legislation, as well as the international commitments acquired. for our country in terms of equality and non-discrimination between women and men. And, in this line, this Doctorate adopts as main objective the gender mainstreaming approach, declared by the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing (1995) as absolutely essential to achieve inclusive and egalitarian public policies, transversality that demands and requires interdisciplinary research and professional training in gender studies. And it is precisely this interdisciplinarity, which must necessarily articulate all training, research, study and analysis of gender, which imposes the interuniversity nature of the present program. Despite the fact that interdisciplinarity has always distinguished gender studies and research, the truth is that the niches of expert knowledge in this regard are spread across the national university geography, so that it is not easy to satisfy a specialized demand in one single center or university. The grouping of universities, institutes and seminars responsible for the doctorate will guarantee that all those demands can be attended despite the extreme specificity and scientific specialization that should characterize a PhD. This is despite the fact that the research and teaching coordinated by the different centers that make up the present program present, in all of them, characteristics that are very focused on interdisciplinarity, a feature that - as has been said - distinguishes studies and research in gender, the certain is that all of this, by tradition, human resources and scientific experience present a greater solvency in certain fields of scientific knowledge that make it complementary to each other.

Thus, for example, the UAM has an indisputable interdisciplinary trajectory, captured in the last five years in the following ID research projects: Title: "Age, gender and rights: aging in women". Nª Reference: FEM2009-09556.

The University of ALICANTE has distinguished itself in recent years for its importance and scientific impact in two of the proposed lines. The first one is Gender, Health and Sexualities, whose curriculum is contributed by researchers who add 9 sexenios, 10 theses read in the last five years and 43 research projects accumulated.

In second place, the line of Gender History and Cultural Production has researchers who accumulate 15 sexennia in total, 3 theses read in the last five years and 19 research projects

The University of HUELVA is a leader in three lines of research ordered according to figure:

Undoubtedly, in the first line Gender, History and Cultural Production, endorsed by a professor, Dr. Pilar Cuder Domínguez, with a long academic and professional career. She coordinates several research projects. In addition to it, the line has a large number of teachers, in particular 8, of which 1, Dr. Mª Luisa Candau Chacón, has 4 sexenios, another Dr. Encarnación Lemus Lopez has 3 and five theses read in the last five years and the rest have 2 sexenios, except 1 that is waiting for this call. Between them they have directed 8 theses in the last five years.

Secondly, there would be the line Gender, Gender Violence and Education also endorsed by a specialist, Dr. José Manuel Coronel Llamas, with an important background in his favor. In addition, this line includes 4 teachers in Huelva, two of them counting three sexenniums in total, Dr. Emilia Moreno Sánchez and Dr. Ángel Hernando Gómez, and important projects that support the weight of this line in the University set.

Finally, UHU also has a very important component in the third line Gender, Economics, Law and Equality Policies, where there are 5 teachers, supported by two six-year terms and two doctoral theses, as well as leading projects in the legislative field and economic.

In the Universidad de ALCALÁ the priority line is: Gender, Economy, Law and Equality Policies. In them the following activities have been developed:

  • Impartition of the interdisciplinary subject "Diversity of Gender and Equality of Rights", coordinated by Professor Encarnación Carmona Cuenca. It is a transversal subject of the Degree Studies, from the 2009-2010 academic year to the present. In this subject teachers from various disciplines participate: Social Psychology, Sociology, Philology, Philosophy of Law, Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Labor Law, Commercial Law and Financial and Tax Law.
  • Constitution of the Research Group recognized by the University of Alcalá: Center for Studies and Research for Gender Equality CEIG-. Ref. CCSS2012 / R39, coordinated by Encarnación Carmona Cuenca.

It is also supported by the following

In relation to it, the following research stay has taken place:

Encarnación Carmona Cuenca: research stay at the Max Planck Institut für ausländisches öffentliches Recht und Völkerrecht in heidelberg (Germany). from 01/09/12011 until 07/30/202. Topic: The Anti-Discrimination Law of the European Union and its implementation in Spain. Funded by the mobility program of the professors of the Madrid universities (Fundación Caja Madrid)

In the Universidad de La Laguna the following proposed research lines are priorities: Gender, History and Cultural Production is where the majority of the faculty of the Universidad de La Laguna (ULL) participates in this doctorate. It is a line that has a long tradition in this University, on which multiple investigations have been carried out and 5 doctoral theses have been published in recent years as well as several books, book chapters and articles in scientific journals.

Although there are only three professors of the ULL linked to the line Gender, Gender Violence and Education, it can be considered one of the priority lines. The aforementioned teachers have extensive experience as Principal Investigators of research projects (five in recent years). Overall, the number of theses read in recent years on this subject and directed by the aforementioned teachers is seven. All of them have an active sexennium, and currently two have three six-year terms and one two. Likewise, the research activity in this line is not limited to the last five years, but can go back to 1998 when Professor Pilar Matud Aznar started the direction of research projects on gender violence, an activity that has continued continuously to date. , having directed several projects, agreements and research contracts since then. Also, the aforementioned teachers have made a good number of publications of books, chapters of books and scientific articles on the subject of the line, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate training activities.

The Gender, Health and Sexualities line, which has two professors from the Universidad de La Laguna , is also of old trajectory in this university. It started with participation in research projects in 1989 and has continued since then. Altogether, the two participating teachers have been Principal Investigators of 11 research projects financed by public entities, two of which belong to the National ID Plan and have been developed in the last five years, having started one of them in 2013. directed four doctoral theses on this line and have published numerous articles in international journals of impact, some of which has been, and continues to be, highly cited internationally.

Finally, the line of Feminist Theories, Citizenship and Globalization is a priority since it has an important trajectory in the ULL. In fact, the main researcher of the active research project referenced in this line belongs to the Universidad de La Laguna . It is a teaching staff that stands out for having several sections of research, directed theses and also publications in international impact journals.

The most representative line in the University of ISLAS BALEARES is Gender, Gender Violence and Education. Proof of this is that the active research project linked to this line is directed and developed by UIB staff and three of the five contributions highlighted in this line have been prepared by personnel of this university.

In the JAUME I DE CASTELLÓN UNIVERSITY, the Gender, History and Cultural Production line is a priority. Such line is supported by its line of publications. It publishes two scientific journals cataloged and included in the ISOC, CINDOC and LATINDEX. One of them: Asparkía. Feminist Research has been active since 1991, while Dossiers Feministes has been active since 1998. It also has an editorial line through the prestigious collection Sendes, one of whose volumes was awarded the National University Edition Award. He has translated works from Greek, English, Russian and Malagasy. In addition, the line is endorsed by the following:

In the REY JUAN CARLOS University, the research line on Feminist Theories, Citizenship and Globalization is a priority first. It dates back to the 2005-2006 academic year, when Professor Ana de Miguel Álvarez, renowned specialist in feminist theories and debates about citizenship, joined the URJC. Since the course indicated has directed a research group and seminar that has just obtained recognition as a Research Group Recognized by the URJC (2013).

In 2010, the aforementioned Research Group was presented to the call for New Groups of the URJC and the Autonomous Community of Madrid (Research Projects of the Creation and Consolidation of Research Groups Program (BOCM December 29, 2009), obtaining a rating of 41 out of 50 in its evaluation in the ANEP and being endowed with 20,000 euros for one year (URJC-CM 2010-CSH-5101) In the framework of this project, and throughout the year 2011, the IP of the Project She studied at the Center for Women's Studies in La Plata (Buenos Aires) and participated as a guest speaker at the Congress, which led to the reception of a PhD candidate from La Plata and the celebration of the First International Debates Theorists on Prostitution (March 2012) The consolidation of the research line has been produced with the obtaining of a new Research Project in the last competitive call of the VI P In this last project (FF2012-37366), not only professors of the UNPL, but of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, collaborate with whom we have also established an open line of communication and research. Likewise, the teacher Ana de Miguel has been invited, as the only European representative, together with the French philosopher Edgard Morin, to participate in the World Day of Philosophy held in Guatemala City 2013.

Likewise, it has just defended the first doctoral thesis result of the Master of Interdisciplinary Studies of Gender that began the 2010/2011 academic year, under the theme of this first line of important research at the Rey Juan Carlos University. The student Eva Palomo Cermeño has defended the thesis Feminism and Socialism in the work of Sylvia Pankhurst: the debates around class, gender and sexuality in the context of British suffragism. The reading took place on April 10, 2013.

2.2) Students with special educational needs derived from the disability

Candidates for the Doctorate Program with special educational needs derived from their disability should, at the UAM in the first instance, go to the coordinator of the doctoral program, to bring it to their attention. Likewise, it will be directed to the Office of Solidarity and Cooperation Action, to resolve (together with the coordinator) the specific needs of each applicant, offering information, advice and guidance.

The Office of Solidarity and Cooperation Action under the Office of the Vice-Chancellor of Cooperation and University Extension of the UAM, established in October 2002, has as one of its fundamental objectives the creation and consolidation of the Disability Care Area, which offers direct attention to all the University Community (students, faculty and staff of Administration and Services). Its objective is to guarantee equal opportunities and full integration of university students with disabilities in university academic life, as well as

the promotion of awareness and awareness of all members of the university community.

The UAM offers students with disabilities personal development and a wide range of training possibilities. One of the activities carried out by the Disability Care Area is information, counseling, personalized attention and detection of personal and academic needs that UAM students may have. In this sense, has developed a "University Guide for Students with Disabilities"

This guide aims to dispel and eliminate the ignorance that still exists today about the incorporation of university students with disabilities, presenting all the necessary information on the supports, services and resources that the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) makes available to these students .

The Disability Care Area also assesses the specific needs of each student, with the objective of objectively informing the faculty about the adaptations that must be made, in each case. In this line of work is the edition and distribution of the "Protocol of Attention to people with disabilities in the University, a guide and support guide that contains general guidelines that can be useful in dealing with a person with disabilities and that helps reduce situations of disorientation caused by the lack of information and ignorance of the difficulties that in the academic field can be presented to the student with disabilities.

In these cases, the Academic Committee will evaluate the need for possible curricular adaptations, itineraries or alternative studies.

At the Universidad de La Laguna there is a Program for Attention to Students with Disabilities (PAED) which offers students with officially recognized disabilities a series of grants that are distributed basically in: 1) transportation subsidy, 2) sign language interpreter , 3) personalized technical aids, 4) complementary aids.

The PAED includes another series of aid for students that presents specific needs for educational support but does not require official recognition of disability. Through the program, adaptations are carried out aimed at suppressing architectonic, communicative and technological accessibility barriers, among others.

Attention is also given to students with disabilities in the Health Services of the ULL. Specifically in its Services Charter it is specified that they will be attended to, processing the requests and collaborating in the effective development of their benefits.

2.3) Body responsible for the admission of students

At the Universidad de La Laguna there is no doctoral school, but there are Academic Commissions of each program, which may establish requirements and additional criteria for the selection and admission of students to a specific doctoral program. In the case of the present Interuniversity Doctorate, the admission to the doctorate program, assignment of tutor and director and the follow-up of the formative activities of the student's program that has formalized the enrollment in the Universidad de La Laguna will depend on the Academic Commission of the same where the ULL will be duly represented.
