Award for a doctor and collaborator of the HISTAGRA Group

Uxía Otero, doctor trained in the HISTAGRA Group, winner of the USC ICARUS award


The doctor in contemporary history Uxía Otero, trained in the HISTAGRA Group with a thesis directed by Ramón Villares and Margarita Barral has been recognised with the ICARUS Programme prize awarded by the USC and which is aimed at recognising the social and economic application of the results of final degree (TFG) and master's degree (TFM) theses, as well as doctoral theses.


In the category of theses in the field of Arts and Humanities and Social and Legal Sciences, the winning works were 'The integration of cloud computing technology in the teaching-learning process: The RuralSchoolCloud project' by María José Rodríguez Malmierca (first prize) and 'Domesticating female bodies in the Franco regime (1939-1975): the (re)modelling of normative femininity and its sartorial incarnation in the transition of the fifties' by Uxía Otero González (second prize). With this study, Uxía Otero sought to understand how and to what extent women embodied gender ideals in Franco's time through their attire. The way in which dress is intimately related to bodies and gender placed attire in the focus of this research. At the time it had already been recognised with the highest qualification by the doctoral tribunal.
