Born in Alcoi in 1964, I graduated in Early Modern History in 1987 at the University of València and earned my PhD in 2000 at the University of Alacant where I am teaching Economic History since 1988. My research has focused on the study of the transition from feudalism to capitalism from the unique case of Alcoi, a city that carried out a process of industrialization, successfully completed during the first half of the nineteenth century. My main publications are the books: "Abans de la indústria: Alcoi als inicis del sis-cents" –Before the Industry: Alcoi at the Beginnings of Seventeenth Century– and "La Reial Fàbrica de Draps d'Alcoi. Ordenances gremials (segles XVI al XVIII)" –The Alcoi's Royal Cloth Factory. Guild Ordinances (Sixteenth- to Eighteenth-century). My political commitment with Esquerra Unida –United Left– led me to become council member and spokesman of this formation in Alcoi City Council between 1999 and 2007 –combining academic life with institutional representation– and then I was a deputy in the Corts Valencianes –Valencian Parliament– between 2007 and 2015, when I rejoined the university. I am currently developing a research, delving into the issue of transition, aims to study the proletarianization process –demographic change, family forms and transfer of ownership– underlying capitalist transformation since the end of the seventeenth century until the mid-nineteenth century. I also head two research groups, one interdisciplinary of critical thought (CRITERI, Critical Socioeconomics) and another about the process of formation of the working class in the Spanish mining centers, within the framework of a coordinated project on the History of Mining financed by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.
