  • Lucía Gómez Sánchez

Graduated in Psychology by the Universitat de València. Extraordinary degree award. Doctor in Social Psychology. Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis. Professor and Coordinator of the Master’s Degree in Gender and Equality Policies, as well as in the Doctoral Programme on Gender-based Studies and Equality Policies of the Universitat de València. Member of the Gender, Knowledge, History and Subjectivity (GEOCOHIS) research group of the University Institute of Women's Studies. 

Since her Doctoral Thesis "Processes of subjectivation and the feminist movement: a political approach in the psychosocial analysis of contemporary identity" (2002) her research interests have had a double thread. On the one hand, her interest in exploring the subjective transformations generated by neoliberal political rationalities in relation to hetero-patriarchal logics. An exploration aimed at making visible the conditions that make possible experiences of subjection and resistance in diverse fields and specific problems (feminist movements, educational spaces, university...) and which has resulted in the publication of scientific research articles, among which the following stand out Sujetos Flexibles: Racionalidades neoliberales y políticas educativas (Spanish for Flexible Subjects: Neoliberal Rationalities and Educational Policies, Education Policy Analysis Archives); Women and globalization: theoretical and political challenges of feminism criticism (WAGADU. A Journal of Transnational Women's and Gender Studies); Psicologia, identidad y politica en las tecnologias de gobierno neoliberales (Spanish for Psychology, identity and politics in the neoliberal technologies of government, Psicología & Sociedade); Experience, subjectivity and politics in the Italian feminist movement: redefining boundaries between body and discourse (European Journal of Womens Studies); Feminism and identity in political psychology (Feminism & Psychology); Educación postdisciplinaria, formación de nuevas subjectividades y gobierno neoliberal: herramientas conceptuales para un análisis del presente (Spanish for Post-disciplinary education, formation of new subjectivities and neoliberal governance: conceptual tools for an analysis of the present, Mexican Journal of Educational Research). Gubernamentalidad neoliberal y producción de conocimiento en la universidad: genealogía de una configuración subjetiva  (Spanish for Neoliberal governmentality and knowledge production in the university: genealogy of a subjective configuration, Universitas Psychologica).

And on the other hand, the concern to materialize the connection between knowledge production and political practice allowed by feminist epistemologies, incorporating this perspective to the research training of the Master in Gender and Equality Policies where she coordinates the course: "Research techniques: epistemological and methodological options from a feminist perspective

On the one hand, the interest in exploring the subjective transformations generated by neoliberal political rationalities in relation to hetero-patriarchal logics. An exploration aimed at making visible the conditions that make possible experiences of subjection and resistance in diverse fields and specific problems (feminist movements, educational spaces, university...) and which has translated into both the publication of scientific research articles and participation in R+D projects and different dissemination and transfer activities. And on the other hand, the concern to materialise the connection between knowledge production and political practice that feminist epistemologies allow, incorporating this perspective into the research training of the Master’s Degree in Gender and Equality Policies.

Currently, she is interested in the development and the problems that arise from the theoretical proposals arising from Feminist Economics. Those appeal to the need for a subjective and cultural transformation that breaks the complicity with the hegemonic socioeconomic models. Coordinator of the Fem Ecnomia Feminista a La Nau Cycle along with María Luisa Moltó.
