Thanks to a British Academy Visiting Fellowship, Dr Jessica Smith will be at the University of St Andrews in September – November 2018. Dr Smith is an anthropologist based in an interdisciplinary department at the Colorado School of Mines, one of the US’s premier engineering schools that focuses on the extractive industries. Dr Smith has previously collaborated with Dr High in co-organising events and co-editing publications.

During this Fellowship, the visiting fellow and the Energy Ethics research team will take their successful collaboration in new directions. They will use their respective disciplinary engagements, methodologies and fieldsites to strengthen their complementary research projects, develop a new collaborative research project as well as enable the host department’s pursuit of a more interdisciplinary approach to knowledge production.
