Research Grants

Changing Animal Bodies: Breeding Responses to Changing Environmental Economic and Social Pressures (2015 – 2017)

Principle Investigator

This 5 Million SEK FORMAS funded project departs from the position that animalas are nota product of agriculture but rather operate as indicators of how farmers and farming are responding to changing environmental, economic and social pressures. The project uses three cases to examine 1) the changing economic circumstances of poultry production, 2) the contested politics of traditional breeds and 3) the environmental pressures faced by pollinating insects. By so doing it will offer insight into, the embodied realities of farm labour, how farmers and farming respond to contemporary challenges, and how we might build robust agricultural futures.

 

Becoming Human: Gender Theory and Animals in a More-than-Human Worlds (2012-2017)

Principle Investigator

This 6 million SEK Vetenskapsrådet Grant is a multidisciplinary project bringing together 3 scholars from Geography, Philosophy and Literature. Beginning from a position that suggests we shape our humanity not in spite of animals but rather through encounters with the more-than-human world, the project investigates the theoretical, ethical and practical questions that arise in the meeting of Gender Theory and Animal Studies.
