Ana Aliende Urtasun graduated in Philosophy and Educational Sciences and, after a period in the working world, in 1990 I joined in the PhD program of the Department of Sociology at the University of the Basque Country. I had my PhD in the same University, with the work entitled “identidadcolectiva Navarra”. The PhD studies were made under the supervision of Dr. Alfonso Pérez -Agote. My research career has developed through projects and work focused on social and cultural transformations of the contemporary world as main theme. My scientific interest has focused on three research lines: 1. Globalization as context: knowledge societies; 2. Science, culture, art and identity; and, 3. Subjects, bodies, strategies and resources.
Since 1997, I teach the Master “Democratic Society, State and Law” taught by the University of the Basque Country. My interest is the global-local conflict from the perspective of Latin American countries. My most noteworthy publications are: 1.Aliende A, Luquin A, Garrido, JJ.
