Professor Emeritus of Social Anthropology at Rovira i Virgili University
Dolors Comas has a long research career in economic anthropology, gender and social inequalities. She has been a councillor on Tarragona City Council, a member of the Catalan Parliament and an advisor to the Audiovisual Council of Catalonia. From this double perspective, academic and political, she has worked on changes in the peasant family, violence against women, the involvement of men in care, or the care needs derived from ageing, with numerous publications. Her latest book Cuidar a mayores y dependientes en tiempos de la covid-19 (Tirant Humanidades, 2022), analyses not only what happened in the pandemic, but also shows the deficits of the dependency care system and provides alternatives to change the model.
