Jon Murdoch Memorial Lecture - Geography's Complex Circle of Concern: Reflections on Ethics, Care and Experimental Lives

Dr Gail Davies, University College London
Tuesday 12th June 2012 - 5:30pm
Committee Rooms 1&2, Glamorgan Building

Public lecture hosted by the Innovation and Engagement Unit.

In 2003 Jon Murdoch made a passionate call to geographers working on ethics, animals and food production for research attentive to both knowledge generation and compassion, extending the ethical attention paid to laboratory animals. 

Here, I return to questions raised about laboratory animals in the geographies of ethics and care, in the increasingly global scope of the biological sciences and the ever more complex interweaving of experimental human and animal lives.
