With a background in psychology, education and history, my research and teaching is developed in the College of Psychology at the Autonomous University of Madrid.
My research interests involves three main areas:
- Practices and socialization processes in different socio-educational contexts. With more emphasis on, literary and artistic musical practices in general.
- History and psychological theory. With special attention to the background of the socio-historical theories, constructivist and constructionist.
- The philosophical work of Charles Sanders Peirce, and its relation to psychology and aesthetics.
The workspace drawn between these axes is intentionally interdisciplinary and includes contributions of psychology, education, anthropology, linguistics, semiotics, philosophy and aesthetics. In last years I have dedicated especially to circumscribing my works to studies of youth, but my interest in the reflection on educational practices wants to understand these practices beyond the vision traditionally understood childhood or youth as the ones apprenticeship human. From the theoretical-methodological point of view I want to work these lines of research both from a qualitative and ethnographic view, as historiography.
My research projects have been developed on the basis of strategies of ethnographic research, micro-ethnographic / linguistic ethnographic, based on narrative analysis or, more recently, visual methodologies. But also from historical / theoretical analysis.
