Subject: Today at 1:30pm AEST online: meet Dr Heather Bray, science
communicator, science communication researcher (complex attitudes to
science & technology in food production).
To: asc-list at lists.asc.asn.au

Dear ASC-List,

Today's member guest is a researcher exploring community understandings of,
and attitudes to, the role of science and technology in food production, in
particular genetically-modified crops and food, and farm animal welfare.
She has recently returned to full-time research after working for over 10
years in science communication, developing community engagement programs
for agricultural research centres that use complex and controversial
technologies. Her background is in agricultural science and she has worked
as an animal scientist in both Australia and the Netherlands.

Current projects include:

“Making plants better; making Australia better? A history of genetic
modification science, policy, and community attitudes in Australia.” ARC
Discovery Project, Prof Rachel A. Ankeny.

“Getting to the meat of the matter: social and economic issues in animal
welfare in Australia’s livestock industries” ARC Linkage Project, Prof
Rachel A. Ankeny and A.Prof Wendy Umberger.
