Elia Blanco

Blanco Rodríguez has a BA in History, with a special mention in Cultural Anthropology, from the University of Castile-La Mancha (UCLM), and an MA in Feminist Studies from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM). Her Master’s degree research project was devoted to the study of the Francoist repression of women in the province of Ciudad Real by virtue of the Political Responsibilities Act.
Blanco Rodríguez has recently embarked on her research career by writing her PhD thesis in the framework of the Feminist and Gender Studies programme of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), under the supervision of Nerea Aresti of the Department of Contemporary History, to which she belongs thanks to a pre-doctoral fellowship awarded to her by the aforementioned university. In her PhD thesis, she inquiries into the characteristics of normative or hegemonic masculinity in nineteenth-century Spain, understood as a social and historical construct, thus eschewing an essentialist conception of gender identities. Specifically, she analyses the male aspects of honour, a concept closely linked to male and female gender ideals in that historical context. In order to undertake this task, her research focuses above all on duelling, a violent way of settling disputes to which men belonging to the socially privileged classes resorted to defend their honour.
