Marta Roqueta-Fernandez

I am a PhD Candidate awarded with a full-time UOC grant for the Doctoral Programme in Information and Knowledge Society. My main research field is focused on the use of social media by Catalan feminist activists.

Previously, I got my Masters Degree in Gender Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London), and my Masters Degree in Advanced Journalism at Universitat Ramon Llull (Barcelona). I studied Journalism at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

My main research fields are representations of race, sex, gender, disability and sexualities in pop culture and mass media, feminism and digital activism, as well as forced marriages. I was awarded a Nativitat Yarza Scholarship for Gender Studies (Fundació Irla) in order to study public policies aimed at preventing forced marriages both in the UK and Scotland. I worked as a consultant for the Catalan Government during the creation of a Catalan protocol against forced marriage. I have also been a gender consultant for the Catalan public broadcaster, Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals.
