Pablo Domínguez is an Environmental Anthropologist. In 2001 he obtained his BSc in Environmental Biology at UAM (Madrid) and in 2010 his PhD in Ethnology and Social Anthropology at EHESS (Paris). In 2010-2011 he was lecturer at the Anthropology Department of the UAB (Barcelona). From 2012 to 2014 he was a research fellow at the Center for Bio-Cultural Diversity of the School of Anthropology and Conservation of Kent University (Canterbury, UK) of which he is still member (http://www.kent.ac.uk/sac/research/research-centres/cbcd/index.html). Since February 2014 he has been a research fellow and associate lecturer at the Cultural Anthropology Department of the UB (Barcelona) working with the Environmental Anthropologist Oriol Beltran, who like Pablo Dominguez has his main expertise on socio-ecological mountain systems, agro-pastoralism and the commons. At the same time as Pablo Dominguez combines different affiliations, from 1st October 2014 he is officially a research fellow of the Ethnoecology Laboratory.
His research has mainly focused on the Mediterranean region, particularly on Berber populations of the High Atlas of Morocco and their agdal systems of communal natural resource management. For the last decade his main theoretical question has been how symbolical-cultural representations and socio-material uses of the Environment relate to each other (www.tdx.cat/bitstream/10803/79093/1/pdg1de1.pdf), whereas his present and future research agenda concentrate on how the procedures of patrimonialization/heritization (http://www.mediter.ird.fr) can contribute or disdain agdals, particularly from a Political Ecology perspective.
