Coffee @ The Commons: Data & Public Trust in Agriculture and Food Systems

1:00-2:00pm Tuesday, April 9, 2019 The Commons
Supported by the Department of Sociology and The Commons

Kelly Bronson, Research Chair in Science & Society, University of Ottawa, uses innovative methods to bring stakeholder voices into the design and governance of emergent and controversial technologies.

This discussion will focus on the relationship between data and public trust in agriculture and food systems.

Bronson has argued that the politics of big data in agriculture have implications for the future of food production and farmer decision-making in North America and the globe.

This program is offered in conjunction with the Blackmar Lecture Series, which is hosted annually by graduate students in the department of Sociology. Dr. Bronson will give the 2019 Blackmar Lecture at 5:00pm in the Kansas Room, Kansas Memorial Union.
