Helen Curry: History of agriculture, conservation and environmentalism

source: Cambridge University     2016年4月14日
How does understanding scientific knowledge, tools and technology shape our interactions with different aspects of the natural world? Dr Helen Curry, Peter Lipton Lecturer in History of Modern Science and Technology, History of Philosophy and Science, explains how she works with disciplines across the University of Cambridge to gain a holistic approach to history and conservation.

This film is one of a series of eight that showcases the extent that conservation-related research is embedded in a wide range of academic fields and involves collaboration with non-academic partners beyond the University. The films are produced by the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute (UCCRI), which was established in October 2013 to foster a cross-disciplinary approach within the University of Cambridge.

“Conservation is primarily underpinned by human behaviour and it is therefore vital to understand the social factors, such as cultural drivers or geographical patterns, which shape our environment, as well as developing our biological and scientific knowledge.” Dr Bhaskar Vira, Director of UCCRI.
