The social science cluster have put together a proposal for a session at the Royal Geographical Society-Institute of British Geographers Annual International Conference, which will be held virtaually between 31 August -3 September 2021.
How applicable is a study, such as FIELD to other regions and contexts? Is Bovine Viral Diarrhoea still a problem worth investigating, or should our focus move on to other livestock diseases? A recent comment by a friendly Scottish farmer got Niamh and Maria thinking.
How have livestock production practices changed? Who or what has influenced these changes? Our interactive timeline of key events in British Agriculture history is now live and helps to address some of these questions.
Following the award of a Research Enrichment – Public Engagement grant from the Wellcome Trust we have now recruited three creative practitioners to take up residency with FIELD over the next 6-12 months.
We are hiring three creative arts professionals to come and work in residence with us on the FIELD project.
