Diego Carbajo is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of the Basque Country through the Basque Governments Doctoral Research Staff Improvement Programme 2017. He belongs to the consolidated research group “Social Change, Precarity and Identity in Contemporary Society” and currently he is developing a postdoctoral project about the “global grammars of self-entrepreneurship” at RMIT University in Australia.
In recent years he has taught different subjects in the Dept. of Sociology 2 and in the Dept. of Didactics of Social Sciences at the University of the Basque Country. He defended his Phd in 2014 with which he obtained the second position of the Social Reality Prize granted by the Presidency of the Basque Government.
His official line of research articulates the concepts of youth, space and precarity and it is concretised in researches on contemporary residential transitions (2014), the phenomenon of youth premises and “lonjas” (2012) or the squatter movement (2007). He also tries to develop a second line of research (intermittent and underfunded) in which he seeks to force the limits of enunciation of Sociology and from which derives experimental works around the ANT, the analysis of some artistic productions or the new uses and meanings of the Zamorano-Leonés donkey race.
