GEiO: Nuevo Proyecto Europeo Ganado!

El SeGReVUni ha servido de plataforma para fortalecer las colaboraciones internacionales que nos han llevado a obtener la subvención de este nuevo proyecto europeo, financiado en el marco del CHANSE, Collaboration of Humanities and Social Sciences in Europe, a joint initiative of 27 research funding organisations from 24 countries.


El proyecto con el título Gender Equitable Interactions Online – Supporting gender equity in work-based videoconferencing es coordinado por Lisa Lazard de la Open University.


Barbara Biglia es la IP en el marco de la URV y coordina el Work Package 2 Conversation Analysis of Online meetings (Study 1), Sara Cagliero es investigadora. Adriana Gil es IP de la Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona.


Otros miembros del consorcio son:   Irmgard Titchner (IP), Technische Hochschule Deggendorf, Germany; Annadís Rúdólfsdóttir (IP) & Gyða Margrét Pétursdóttir, University of Iceland, Iceland; Rose Capdevila, Open University.


Dentro de poco abriremos posiciones postdoctorales para colaborar con nosotras.


De mientras os pasamos aquí abajo el abstract del proyecto


The GEiO project investigates the role of gender in online work meetings across four nations (Germany, Iceland, Spain and the UK). Research exploring how gender becomes relevant to videoconferencing at work remains in its infancy. Existing investigations suggest that with the exponential rise in digitally mediated working patterns and new reliance on videoconferencing platforms, organizations are unready to address gender inequality online.

A key aim of this project is to build new transnational evidence on the currently unexplored ways in which digital videoconferencing innovations maintain or can be used to resist gender inequity at work. We will be working with international corporations in each of the partner countries. Participating corporations will support data collection and provide feedback on the research process and findings. Three different and complementary methods will be used to explore gendered processes in this context. The first study will use video-recordings of online work meetings to analyse conversational patterns. The second study will explore shared understandings of digital working through rank orderings of relevant statements by participants that will be both statistically and thematically analysed. A Story Completion task will be used in the third study. This method can be used to capture social perceptions of videoconference meetings through storytelling. By approaching the data both by study and by country, this methodological design will enable cross-national comparisons at different levels of analysis. The research findings will provide a firm basis for knowledge exchange with private sector organisations to develop evidence-based training on digital gender equity. An accredited micro credential training course on gender equitable interactions online will be produced. It will be translated into the languages used in each of the partner locations to support good organisational practice.
