Paula Escribano is a researcher at the Laboratory of Personal Networks and Communities (Egolab-GRAFO, www.egolab.cat) and member of the Fundamentally Oriented Anthropology Research Group (GRAFO, www.grafo.cat) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), Spain. She also works as part-time professor at the Dept. of Social and Cultural Anthropology (UAB), where she teaches Critical Theory, Fieldwork Analysis and Social and Cultural Anthropology. Her research covers two main areas: cultural and environmental change in a context of neoliberal governance and livelihood strategies of small agroecological initiatives. In both areas, she focuses on social organization, public policies and supply. She uses mixed methods centred on the analysis of personal networks as well as ethnographic techniques, with special attention to ethnographical fieldwork. She has done fieldwork for a year in Hungary and between 2013 and 2020 in Spain (Catalonia and Madrid) and France.
Paula received her PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona with the thesis “Back-to-the-land” in Catalonia: An anthropological perspective (2020; Excellent Cum Laude). At the same institution she received her Master’s Degree in Ethnographic Research, Anthropological Theory and Intercultural Relations. She wrote the MA-thesis Utopias in post-socialism: the case of a Hungarian ecovillage (2013). She obtained her Degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Granada (2012) and spent a year at the University Eötvös Loránd (ELTE) in Budapest, Hungary, collaborating with the project “Identity and Culture in Hungary” at the Department of Anthropology.
Paula has taught courses to PhD, Master and BA students at Universities in Spain, Poland or Mexico. She has taught courses about gender and the feminist perspective from an anthropological perspective. She is specialist in conducting training courses on the analysis of ethnographic data for teachers and researchers, as well as in analysing social capital in business initiatives with social and environmental motivations. She has participated in master’s degree committees and co-directed an MA thesis (TFM). She currently co-directs the project “Rural self-management initiatives and public policies: A conceptualization of neo-peasants” financed by the international Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research-Post PhD (2019-2021). She is researcher in the project “The community dimension of social exclusion and precariousness” (DIMCOM) and collaborates with the project “The Role of Social Transnational Fields in the Emergence, Maintenance and Decay of Ethnic and Demographic Enclaves” (ORBITS) MINECO-FEDER (2016-2020). She is part of the Anthropology of Economy Network in the European Association of Social Anthropologist (EASA). She is also member of the Network of the Iberoamerican Anthropologist (AIBR). She is currently co-coordinating as a guest editor a Special Issue in the Journal Culture, Agriculture, Food and Environment (CAFÉ) about Rural livelihood strategies and public policy in Europe with articles from Latvia, Italy, France, Hungary and Spain.
