Adolfo Estalella - Bio

I am an anthropologist with an interest in grassroots urbanism and digital cultures. I am affiliated to the Department of Social Anthropology and Social Psychology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain).

I have worked for the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas), the Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC) at the University of Manchester and the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.

Research: City and Digital Culture

I have investigated the epistemic transformations of our contemporary taken place in two empirical domains: the city and the Internet. I explore the contestation of traditional knowledge institutions and the emergence of new forms of research promoted by civic associations and activists movement in urban contexts.

I have a long standing interest on digital ethnography and modes of experimental collaborations.
