Dominique Belkis est anthropologue, maître de conférences à l’Université Jean Monnet/Saint-Étienne et chercheure rattachée à l’équipe POCO (Politiques de la Connaissance) du Centre Max Weber (UMR 5283/CNRS).

Ses travaux actuels qui portent sur la mémoire urbaine interrogent la capacité des dispositifs mémoriels à l’œuvre à faire émerger de la mémoire multiple et des figures habitantes variées.
