September 25, 2017 - 18:46
Ask Greve has just started as workplace student at NIAS, he will be here for the next 6 months.
I am a student of sociology at the University of Copenhagen. I have been focusing on cultural sociology and science and technology studies, with special interest in studies of food and agriculture.
My master’s thesis is about the role of scientific knowledge in promoting biodiversity in the BR Hills/MM Hills region in Karnataka, through promoting sustainable cultivation of plants for medicinal use. I am mainly concerned with how scientific knowledge is utilised in changing local practices.
