Current Research

Macarena's PhD project aims to develop a sociological understanding of the phenomenon of respect through the empirical and theoretical analysis of two dimensions of it: 1) its connection with the moral dimension of class inequality and 2) its impact on individual agency. The project aims to develop a theoretical model which connects the concepts of respect, class inequality and agency as well as an empirical model which enables the study of their interconnections. A multimethod strategy is proposed to study this phenomenon in Chilean society, in which the demand for respect has become increasingly important. Macarena is funded by CONICYT-Chile and her supervisors are John Holmwood and Tracey Warren.
