Intercultural Relations: Mobility, Religions, Family, GendersFree
About this Research Line
This research line aims to analyze social change, negotiation processes, and social conflicts derived from the coexistence of religious, ethnic and gender differences in globalised contexts. Among the key aspects of the research line are the analysis of migration studies, gender studies, sociological reflections of religious practices and beliefs and LGBT and queer studies.
The ongoing research aims to develop an intercultural and intersectional interpretation of issues related to international migrations, religious conflicts, the diversification of family practices and structures and the pluralization of gender and sexual identities. The research line’s main interest focuses on the social stratification of citizenship and the construction of social and cultural hegemonies. The research perspective involves both the structural aspects of the political system and the law and the cultural aspects that affect daily life and the production of meaning and identity among social actors. The combined consideration of the two perspectives results in a mixed approach that blends the micro and macro when determining the strength of the constraints that affect social action.
