Stefan Dorondel is an anthropologist interested in post-socialist land tenure systems and in the change of land use. He holds a PhD in history and ethnology from the Lucian Blaga University Romania and a PhD in Agrarian Studies from Humboldt University Berlin. He was a visiting fellow to the Agrarian Studies Program at Yale University (2005) and holds a postdoctoral position at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology Halle. Since 2007, he has been at the Francisc I. Rainer Institute of Anthropology Bucharest. He is researching the dramatic changes of rural socialist landscapes driven by post-socialist, political and economic changes. Massive deforestation, land fragmentation, transformations of pasture into build-up area are only a few of the changes the post-socialist rural areas went through.
