Again not much to report on the data collection front as the one follow-up interview I had scheduled got canceled and although I sent emails out, I have yet to get data or meeting dates sent back to me.
Last Saturday I did got to an Montreal food system event (JAM convergence) which I think was positive to understand the context within which my work fits. I made a few connections (although not possible survey respondents) and I look forward to discussing my work and their work and how it all fits together.
Think has brought together a number of sources (see below) that made me think of how my work (so the themes of my work, my science communication and art, and my methods) fits into a larger context.
Interesting interview with Wendel Berry on environmental and sustainability problems we are facing. It’s really about the beauty and irreplaceablility of nature and the importance of agriculture.
A little word from my collaborator Edgar on why we need art-science collaboration.
A nice resource about doing interviews (in the sense of data collection, not preparing for a job).
Website on Los Angeles UA, which is kind of like the AUMTL site but a different type of synthesis. I could see how the work I am interested in, which is both about quantification and about the social and biophysical context P (and other resource) management happens in, could fit into such a synthesis.
