Field of study: Contemporary History
Alicia Victoria Mira Abad. Senior Lecturer of the Department of Contemporary Humanities at the University of Alicante. In 1997 she started her researcher career as a grant holder of the MEC that ended with a PhD thesis on secularisation, French secularity and its impact on 19th century Spanish society. She has developed other lines of research from a gender perspective, centred on motherhood, female work and exile. In this last field, she has been part of the “Exile network: Research on refugees and other migrations with the support of AHRC and Outcast Europe”. She has also taken part in other European research projects such as REMSH and RAMSES2, promoted by the Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l'Homme of Aix-en-Provence. In the last couple of years she has been part of the research teams in 3 I+D+I National Plan projects for the study of discourse and image of contemporary monarchy in Spain. Various publications in reviews come out of them, like Melanges, History and Politics or Constitutional History and a book published as a whole in Síntesis. Her studies have mostly been focused on the construction of monarchic and identity narrative and the impact of gender stereotypes since the institution.
