Our postdoctoral researcher Francisca Ortiz (PhD in Sociology from the University of Manchester and Master from the Universidad Católica de Chile) presented on April 27 at 8:30 am with Alejandro Espinosa-Rada, on “Gender and geographic location of researchers (Global South or North) in the social network analysis community.”

The following day, on Thursday, April 28, at 8:30 am, Francisca Ortiz presented “Living while caring: theoretical/methodological approaches to understanding care and support networks for the elderly.”

On the same day, our associate researcher María Beatriz Fernández (academic at the UC Sociology Institute), presented at 9:45 am, about “Care and female domestic work in a pandemic. How does teleworking affect the subjective well-being of women in Chile?”.
