Title of the Ph.D. research
Migrant feminists unionized in Barcelona, Spain – An ethnography of housework and care
(Migrantes en lutte dans le travail domestique et de soins. Une ethnographie du syndicalisme à Barcelone, Espagne)

My Ph.D. research is based on working with and for house workers and caregivers unionized in Sindihogar, Barcelona. The union´s lines of work join under housework and care-giving as overarching systems of oppression for women. Members of the union, the Sindis, are protagonists of striking diversity. It is a community of women who have fought military regimes, confronted religious and civil laws, have led socialist parties, and walked across deserts. Their experiences have reached a point where mutual support among women is welcome and necessary as most still struggle to regularize their stay as migrants. By adopting an activist role within the union, my fieldwork has been strongly grounded in ethnographic participant observation. My work follows the power-structure evolution and tensions that arose since COVID-19 unexpectedly grew this feminist community.
