Just Existing is Resisting: new paper and short movie published!

The Agri/Cultures team are proud and excited to announce that we have just published a new open access paper: Just Existing is Resisting: The Everyday Struggle against the Expansion of GM Crops in Spain. The paper reflects, based on empirical data, on the multiple forms of everyday practices of resistance by which different stakeholders linked to the maize sector in Spain challenge the expansion of GM crops. Below you can find the abstract and here the full text. Enjoy the reading!

Together with the publication of this article, and responding to the objective of exploring novel ways to making scientific results accessible to a non-specialised public, we have also produced a beautiful short animation movie based on this academic publication. Have a look at it and feel free to distribute among your own networks!

Introductory short movie to The Agri/Cultures Project

Ladies and gentlemen! Damer og herrer!

Damas y caballeros! 

We are glad to present you today our introductory short movie to The Agri/Cultures Project!

It summarises in only three minutes what this project is about and you can find it dubbed in Spanish and Norwegian in our Youtube and Vimeo channels. This is the first video of a series of short movies that we will create during the development of this project to show some aspects of our research on maize agrifood relational networks.

Actually, one of the aims of this project is to explore new ways to capture and communicate scientific results to non-specialisied audiences. We think it is essential to make efforts to transcend the scientific bubble and the scientific public and give knowledge back to the rest of society, especially if it is publicly funded. This is our first humble step towards that end, although we know there is room for improvement and experimentation on this area.

We hope you enjoy it!

Thanks to everyone who helped making it!

PS. We are interested in knowing more research projects that use short videos to communicate results. Do you know of any?
