I am associate professor of social anthropology of the Department of Social and Human Sciences at Universitas Miguel Hernández in Elche (Spain). I obtained my Ph.D. in Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Sevilla (Spain) and an MA in Cultural Anthropology at Northwestern University (USA). I have delivered seminars and carried out research stages as Visiting Scholar (VS) in different European and American universities: Johannes Gutenberg-Universität (Germany); Oxford-Brookes University (United Kingdom); University of the Aegean (Greece); Università degli Studi di Teramo (Italia); Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar (Ecuador); University of Florida (United States of America); University of Oxford (United Kingdom); Univerza v Ljubljani (Slovenja); Wageningen University (Nederlands). RESEARCH LINES (1) My theoretical concerns focus on meanings production, this is, in those processes through which ‘things’ acquire different senses in different contexts of production. (2) The most ethnographic research line deeps into the comprehension of culture and society in tourism contexts from a dialogical perspective. My analysis are highly influenced by the work of Mikhail Bakhtin, the ethnographic studies of Jeremy Boissevain and Pierre Bourdieu’s theory on social space (stratification). (3) In the applied dimension I face issues related with cultural heritage and development, both in the realm of international cooperation (Latin America) as well as regional development (Europe).
