It shows the topics of which we have Seniors willing to become mentors in the research work.
Since the subject is very broad to be able to have knowledge of everything, it is specified in what aspects this knowledge is in a way that allows us to specify and focus the work to be done.
As there are people with other knowledge will be incorporated in the corresponding section.


Considering the complexity of this field of knowledge people mentors offer their knowledge and experience in areas that can foster a more concrete and simultaneously guide the demands for students who obviously have a very broad and generic or too specific. It is based on the following aspects that can accompany to deepen their research

Local politics:

Local politics consists of the process by which goods, services, and privileges are allocated by government or the rules are established for their allocation by other social institutions. Local government is a political subdivision of a national or regional government which performs functions that are culturally defined as being “local” in character, which in nearly all cases receives its legal powers from the national or regional government but possesses some degree of discretion in the making of decisions and which normally has some taxing powers. Local politics, therefore, consists not merely of local activities which relate to national political matters, but it involves a degree of choice to be made within the boundaries of the local unit of government relative to the selection of office holders and the making and execution of public policy. These decisions are not necessarily made unilaterally through a local political system and its institutions. Often decisions are shared with other governments, and local political institutions and processes are commonly interwoven with those of neighboring localities and with regional and national political systems.

Franco dictator:

Study of the period known as the dictatorship of Franco or Franco-Franco regime or Franco-9 to the period of contemporary history of Spain corresponding to the exercise by General Francisco Franco of the leadership of the State and the development of Francoism; that is, from the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) until his death and succession in 1975. Note 3 Its broad temporal dimension and the marked presence of Franco himself throughout it makes it often used to designate the expression era of Franco.

Citizen networks:

A citizen network is a telematic environment that aims to promote and foster communication, cooperation, exchanges, organization and access to new information technologies to all citizens and associations that are a local community and at the same time , open this local community to network communication with the rest of the world. It is based on the basis of telematic citizens' rights and it is characterized, with respect to other telematic initiatives, by the following elements: * the contents are created by the adherents * Two-way communication between all the actors that are part of it * ease of use and / or support and training initiatives to guarantee effective access to everyone * Economicity in the access, use and necessary material * its non-anonymous character, with the full recognition of the participating actors.


Sociology is the scientific study of society, including patterns of social relationships, social interaction, and culture.[1][2][3] It is a social science that uses various methods of empirical investigation[4] and critical analysis[5] to develop a body of knowledge about social order, acceptance, and change. Many sociologists aim to conduct research that may be applied directly to social policy and welfare, while others focus primarily on refining the theoretical understanding of social processes. Subject matter ranges from the micro-sociology level of individual agency and interaction to the macro level of systems and the social structure.[6]

Inequality of women:

Gender inequality is the idea and situation that women and men are not equal. Gender inequality refers to unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals wholly or partly due to their gender[citation needed]. It arises from differences ingender roles.[1] Gender systems are often dichotomous and hierarchical. Gender inequality stems from distinctions, whether empirically grounded or socially constructed. Women lag behind men in many domains, including education, labor market opportunities and political representation.

Emotion and society:

"To study, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the social construction of emotions and feelings, relating them to the main dimensions of the social structure, such as class, gender and age categories. It is considered, in the same way At the same time, the existence of interrelations between the different structural dimensions in such a way that the different categories are divided internally because of the interconnection between each of the structural dimensions and the remaining dimensions. Third, given the growing impact of the In the process of globalization, the claim that "society" and "social structure" can not be maintained is concepts that are comparable to nation-state. The vision of the social structure and its relation to subjectivity must be expanded not only locally , but also on a global scale, since the intensification of the movements of people, goods and capital forces to make a revision of the conceptual map and the perspective to use".

The Ombudsman:

is one of the institutions of the Generalitat de Catalunya whose functions are defined in articles 78 and 79 of the Statute of Autonomy of Catalonia. Its mission is to guarantee everyone's right to good government administration. He must respond to the complaints of people who are abandoned before the action or the lack of action of the administrations. The figure of the Síndic has historical precedents in the peace and truce assemblies of the s. XI as well as in the providers of grievances of the Middle Ages. The current Ombudsman of Catalonia since July 2004 is Rafael Ribó i Massó.


Is the social behavior and norms found in human societies. Culture is considered a central concept in anthropology, encompassing the range of phenomena that are transmitted through social learning in human societies. Cultural universals are found in all human societies; these include expressive forms like art, music, dance, ritual, religion, and technologies like tool usage, cooking, shelter, and clothing. The concept of material culture covers the physical expressions of culture, such as technology, architecture and art, whereas the immaterial aspects of culture such as principles of social organization (including practices of political organization and social institutions), mythology, philosophy, literature (both written and oral), and science comprise the intangible cultural heritage of a society.[1]
In the humanities, one sense of culture as an attribute of the individual has been the degree to which they have cultivated a particular level of sophistication in the arts, sciences, education, or manners. The level of cultural sophistication has also sometimes been seen to distinguish civilizations from less complex societies. Such hierarchical perspectives on culture are also found in class-based distinctions between a high culture of the social elite and a low culture, popular culture, or folk culture of the lower classes, distinguished by the stratified access to cultural capital. In common parlance, culture is often used to refer specifically to the symbolic markers used by ethnic groups to distinguish themselves visibly from each other such as body modification, clothing or jewelry. Mass culture refers to the mass-produced and mass mediated forms of consumer culture that emerged in the 20th century. Some schools of philosophy, such as Marxism and critical theory, have argued that culture is often used politically as a tool of the elites to manipulate the lower classes and create a false consciousness, and such perspectives are common in the discipline of cultural studies. In the wider social sciences, the theoretical perspective of cultural materialism holds that human symbolic culture arises from the material conditions of human life, as humans create the conditions for physical survival, and that the basis of culture is found in evolved biological dispositions.

A social skill:

is any competence facilitating interaction and communication with others where social rules and relations are created, communicated, and changed in verbal and nonverbal ways. The process of learning these skills is called socialization. For socialization, interpersonal skills are essential to relate to one another. Interpersonal skills are the interpersonal acts a person uses to interact with others, which are related to dominance vs. submission, love vs. hate, affiliation vs. aggression, and control vs. autonomy categories (Leary, 1957). Positive interpersonal skills include persuasion, active listening, delegation, and stewardship, among others. A healthy social interest that involves more than being in a group is required for well-adjusted social skills. Social psychology is the academic discipline that does research related to social skills and studies how skills are learned by an individual through changes in attitude, thinking, and behavior.
  • Coordination – Adjusting actions in relation to others' actions.
  • Mentoring – Teaching and helping others how to do something (e.g. a study partner).
  • Negotiation – Discussion aimed at reaching an agreement.
  • Persuasion – The action or fact of persuading someone or of being persuaded to do or believe something.
  • Service Orientation – Actively looking for ways to evolve compassionately and grow psycho-socially with people.

is a complex economic, social and ecological concept about the relationships between societies and the environment. It aims to be a way of organizing human activity so that society and its members are able to meet their needs and express their maximum potential in the present while maintaining biodiversity and natural ecosystems, and Plan and act to keep these ideals indefinitely. Sustainability affects all organizational levels, from the neighborhood to the entire planet. It is often a controversial issue. It was one of the pillars of the Universal Forum of Cultures, Barcelona-2004.
Sustainability is to provide the best possible today without endangering tomorrow's resources, that is, exactly avoiding what popular culture in Spanish calls bread for today and hunger for tomorrow (bread today, hunger for tomorrow), applied in the widest sense and all kinds of resources: economic, material, human, social and environmental. The Brundtland Report of 1987 defines it technically and officially as "satisfying the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability to meet the needs of future generations." [1] [2]
In economics, sustainable growth consists of current revenue increases that can be sustained over time without compromising future ones. For example, an investment that allows to produce more, and therefore firm business and sell more in principle would be sustainable. An example of unsustainable income is those obtained quickly by the sale of companies, since later it is not possible to make money with them, and generally the sale or suppression of material or human resources, for the same reason, or a Local necessity if it is then rented more expensive.


is the sharing of methods to achieve objectives that meet the needs of the group. In cooperation, the success of one depends always and in every way on the success of others, it works by joining forces and taking advantage of the different talents of each member of the group, and it differs from competition in that it is It works independently and isolated in order to achieve a goal before it is done by another individual.
However, cooperation can be forced or voluntary, and as a result, individuals or groups may end up cooperating even though they have nothing in common. Examples of this can be found in commerce, military battles, jobs, schools, prisons and, in general, in all those institutions where individuals, voluntarily or compulsorily, are part of.

What is municipalism?

Municipalism is an idea of political organization based on neighborhood assembly institutions that, practicing direct democracy, would be organized in a system of free municipalities or communes as an alternative to the centralized state.
In Spain, municipalism has its political origins in the 19th century and in the republican and anarchist tradition. They were politicians like Pi i Margall, president of the First Republic, or Fernando Garrido, who contributed to Spanish politics this form of government linked to citizen participation. Pi i Margall developed the theory of federal decentralization with the aim of including all social strata. The Municipalist commitment, a document prepared in 2014 by the Metropolitan Observatory, explains in detail the historical development of federalism in Spain, and territorial decentralization and democratic administration, in a process coordinated by Pi i Margall and intended to “unite in the diversity". Pi and Margall developed the theory of federal decentralization with the purpose of covering all social spheres. Federalism was not just territorial decentralization and democratic administration; for Pi and Margall, autonomy arose from a pact aimed at “uniting in diversity”.

Care should not only be a women's thing:

The tasks of caring for people: children, housework, professions that involve caring for people (nursery, nursing ...) should not only be performed by women.


(from the Greek spelaion (cave) and logo (treaty)) is the science that studies caves, caves, or other karst phenomena, from different points of view; formation, constitution, physical characteristics, ways of life and evolution over time. It is also called exploring caves and chasms, a sporting activity that requires proper technical equipment and often some preparation for climbing and diving.

Local history:

it is the specialty of historical science that takes as its object the past of a locality. She is one of oldest, since from the beginning of history in the Greek locality, the reference to its own polis is preferred by the historians. The history of Rome, from the earliest annals, is still a local urban history that expands with territorial conquests to the history of an Empire. In the Middle Ages, many church or civilian chroniclers (especially if they did not write from a major court who composed the largest protonational chronicle corpora) used to take a local, sometimes even small, perspective. rural (often monastic) events, which did not stop them from reflecting also the most important events that came to their notice. The Modern Age did not change this situation, except for one fundamental thing: the multiplication of the production of these kinds of local stories, and that many of them reached the printing press, with more or less diffusion. Archival practices became more and more systematic, and this led to more continuity in the sources that have been preserved. Also history has many sources like the artistic and audio-visual ones. Since the renewal of the historical methodology of the mid-twentieth century, privileging economic and social history, it seeks to rescue local history from pure customism and to elevate it to a higher category, not only as a provider of information for more global approaches, but as a laboratory for new ideas.1 Approaches like microhistory place a special interest on the local level. Within the historical specialties that spatially limit its object, it would be below the most common national history, although it has equivalent justification in the very abundant disposition of documentary sources.
