Aintzane Rincón earned her PhD in Contemporary History from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), where, on 15 June 2012, she defended her dissertation, Representaciones de género en el cine español (1936-1982): Figuras y fisuras. Her research work focuses on the analysis of feminine and masculine identity models during the Franco era and the transition. To this end, she has performed an interpretive analysis of the filmography at each stage, highlighting the capacity of the seventh art not only to reflect the collective imaginary, but also to collaborate actively in its construction. In addition to addressing the study of normative models, she has also put forward interpretations that question the monolithic nature of film language. For this research, she was awarded the Juana de Vega Chair Prize by the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) in 2012 and the 5th Miguel Artola Prize by the Contemporary History Association in 2012.

Rincón is currently engaged in a project that, for the purpose of identity analysis, incorporates the study of the reception of popular films through oral testimonies, among other sources.

She started lecturing at the UPV/EHU in 2008, teaching modules such as ‘History of America’, ‘Current World History’, and ‘Social History and Industrial Relations’. Since 2015, she has held the post of assistant professor at the aforementioned university’s Faculty of Social and Communication Sciences, teaching the modules ‘History of Social Communication’ and ‘Twentieth-century Political and Social History’.

Rincón’s most important publications include the books, Representaciones de género en el cine español (1939-1982): figuras y fisuras, CEPC and USC, Madrid, 2014; and in collaboration with the anthropologist Arantza Anzizar, Ametsak egi bihurtuz.
