Patrick Bieler I obtained my Master’s degree in European Ethnology and am currently a doctoral researcher in Human Geography at the Integrative Research Institute on Transformations of Human-Environment Systems (IRI THESys).

My research interests include the social anthropology of science and technology, urban anthropology and human-environment relations. Moreover, I am concerned with what could be termed anthropology/geography of time/temporality and future-making. At IRI THESys I am involved in discussions about the role of ethnography in interdisciplinary research as well as with how ethnography potentially changes under such conditions.

My dissertation’s working title is “Transforming Rice Ecologies. A Case Study from Burkina Faso”. In this research I aim at understanding the course of project-driven land conversion to irrigated rice plains and the socio-ecological effects of the associated land-use changes in the Bagré region in South-east Burkina Faso. I have conducted fieldwork in Ouagadougou (2014 – on urbanization & 2017, 2018) and Bagré, BF (2017, 2018).
