Gloria García-Romeral


I graduated in Political Science and Sociology at Universidad de Granada, and obtained my MSc in Social Research and PhD in Sociology at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I have been visiting research fellow at Université Catholique de Louvaine and Università degli Studi di Padova.

My research focuses on the intersection between gender, interculturality, religious diversity and public policies. Currently, I work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Gender and ICT research group (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya) and as a project manager at the Centre d’Estudis Interdisclipinaris de Gènere (Universitat de Vic).

I have also worked as a researcher at CEAACES, Ecuador’s public agency for the evaluation of the quality of higher education, and as a member of the technical staff at the Office of Religious Affairs of the Barcelona City Council.

I combine research with teaching on the BA in Sociology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and on the MA in Political Science at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.
