Dr George Cusworth

Postdoctoral Researcher

George Cusworth is a human geographer working on the 'Enabling Change' package of the Wellcome Trust funded project, Livestock Environment and People (LEAP). His work looks at different evaluations of 'good' and 'bad' food by inspecting the cultural and techno-scientific claims on which they are based.

His research has focussed on an STS critique of the power of global warming potential metrics in food sustainability discourse; the role of legumes in farm management practices; the rise of the Regenerative Agricultural movement; an agricultural ethics of care; and attempts to naturalise the presence of livestock animals in the food system.
