Laura Castillo Mateu, member of the FEM2016-65834-C2-2-P project team presented the paper “Sororidad, clase y sexualidad: relaciones femeninas y feministas en 14 de abril. La República” (“Sisterhood, class and sexuality: female and feminist relations on April 14. The Republic”) in the Gender and Communication Section of the annual conference of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), which was held in Cartagena (Colombia) from July 16-20, 2017.
The contribution, which was developed with colleague Emma Gómez Nicolau, focused on the analysis of the relationships between the female characters in the sequel to the hit TVE series La Señora. The paper especially focused on the representation of sorority as an element of subversive affectivity that favours the collective empowerment and resistance of the feminine subject and that also functions as an element of subversive affectivity in the different public and private settings in which the plot develops.
