Quiénes somos

Meet the people who are part of FEMICOM

We are a group of researchers interested in the epistemology of science and meta-research in communication, with special attention to gender, as this has been an articulating and constituent element of science.

In this way we respond to how and why communication sciences have been formed, as well as the main trends, leaderships, presences and absences of hegemonic and minority subjects and objects.
