FORA.tv Speaker - Carol Morris
Carol Morris' background is in Geography (BA, Liverpool and PhD, Wye College, University of London). Her PhD was at the interface between agricultural geography and rural sociology and explored the way in which farmers were being enrolled into environmental practices through the medium of EU policy measures. In Egenis, Morris is developing research that examines what the rise of genomic knowledges in agriculture means for the practices of livestock breeding and rearing.
Before coming to Exeter in November 2003 Morris worked as a Research Fellow at the CCRU (Countryside and Community Research Unit, University of Gloucestershire) on numerous projects mostly concerned with the evaluation of rural environmental policy, but also with farm animal welfare and rural women's employment.
