Early Career Researcher Workshop 

Tue 28 August, 2018

The initial media reaction to our AHRC-funded research was scathing: we “caused a flap”. Yet our work on the 'Cultural and Scientific Perceptions of Human-Chicken Interactions' and our GCRF 'Going Places' projects has demonstrated that chickens are fundamentally important, in differing ways, for diverse segments of society. This final free event integrates the results of all our research to reveal the economic, social and cultural impact of chickens through time and space. What do these results mean for the future of human-animal-environmental well-being?
