Carmen Longas Luque is a PhD candidate at the Erasmus Research Center for Media, Communication & Culture. Her research focuses on the role of discourses of race/ethnicity in televised football production and how these discourses are related to televised football content and audience receptions. This project is part of the research project funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) entitled How racist is televised football and do audiences react? Carmen’s research is supervised by dr. Jacco van Sterkenburg (co-promotor), with prof. dr. Susanne Janssen as the promotor.
Carmen received a bachelor’s degree in Pyschology from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2014), after which she obtained a research master’s degree in Behavioural Science from Radboud University Nijmegen (2018). In her master’s thesis she explored teacher attitudes and beliefs towards students with an ethnic minority background, and how these attitudes and beliefs influenced teachers’ culturally responsive practices.
