Summary

Dr Lewis Holloway's research and teaching focuses on issues surrounding food, farming and the countryside. He is particularly interested in the production of different knowledges associated with farming and rural living, in the implications of particular technological interventions in agriculture, in human-nonhuman relationships in rural spaces, and in 'alternative' ways of living in the countryside and of producing and distributing food.
