Mauro Rodrigues



I have a degree in Economics from the University of Évora; in 2003 I was an Erasmus student in France, at the Faculté de Sciences Economiques et de Gestion, Université de Nantes. In 2007, I enrolled in a master degree in Economics at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark but dropped out, and in 2009 I took master courses in Anthropology at the University of Copenhagen. In 2010, I took a master degree in Anthropology of Human Rights and Social Movements, in Lisbon, at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities of the Universidade NOVA de Lisboa. My master degree was financed by a Danish scholarship and I finished it with excellent qualifications. In 2013, I presented a paper at the 5th Congress of the Associação Portuguesa de Antropologia in Vila Real, Portugal. I’m an author and I write short articles for the anthropological website PopAnth. I’m also a musician, I’ve been playing in rock bands since 1996 and I’m currently working on a solo project. I can read and communicate in six languages, Danish included.
