Telling the Bees

Telling the Bees is an interdisciplinary Early Career Researcher project funded by the AHRC, working with Tay Landscape Partnership to develop new understandings of beekeeping practices through ‘future folklore’ for new and future generations of beekeepers. The future folklore prototypes will be a community resource and also a probe for academic communities, prompting questions on the role of folklore, literature, tacit knowledge, and traditional ecological knowledge structures. The project runs from April 2015 until March 2016.

I'm a Co-I on this project with PI, Dr Deborah Maxwell (Design Informatics, Edinburgh College of Art), and Co-I Dr Toby Pillatt (Landscape Arcaheology, Sheffield).
