Adèle Blazquez

Associate Researcher

PhD Candidate, EHESS

A Phd candidate in Social Anthropology at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS, Paris), Adèle Blazquez researches the everyday life in the violent and criminalized context of Northern Mexico. Through an 18 months ethnography in Badiraguato, a rural municipality in the Sinaloa state, her thesis examines the articulation, in the social experience of the inhabitants, between, on the one hand, the recourse to armed violence and its grounding in the economy that is categorized as “criminal”, and, on the other, the routine functioning of local institutions. She holds an MA in Anthropology from the EHESS during which, based on four-months fieldwork, she analyzed the protection strategies of the inhabitants of an isolated village in the Chihuahua state.
