Senior Research Fellow
My research is inspired by the urgent need to develop and promote types of farming and food consumption that are sustainable, just and resilient and that pay due care and attention to the needs of humans, animals and the natural environment. My work has focused on using novel practice-based approaches to understand the nature of the demand for food and drinks and to foster more sustainable eating and drinking practices. In an era in which many Western consumers are becoming increasingly detached from modern, often technologically-driven, farming practices, my work also seeks to encourage science-society dialogue about food production.
Dr Adrian Evans is a Senior Research Fellow in Food, Water and Resilient Communities. He has worked on several European projects relating to issues around food, farming, animal welfare and water consumption. He was a member of the management team of the EU project Dialrel, which addressed religious slaughter issues and the consumption of halal and kosher foods. He worked as a social-scientific researcher for the Welfare Quality® project, an EU-funded project which addressed issues of farm animal welfare. He also worked for the Sustainable Practices Research Group (SPRG), investigating the links between political economies of water provision, water consumption and sustainability. Adrian is the lead author of several European Union reports, journal articles and book chapters relating to issues such as; consumer concerns about farm animal welfare; the public understanding of animal welfare science; media representations of religious slaughter and the consumption of halal and kosher foods. His current research areas include; the practical ethics of food and drink consumption, especially in relation to sustainability and farm animal welfare; engaging citizens around food and farming issues; theories of consumption practices; food and communities research. Other interests include: historical geography; science and technology studies; geographies of material-culture; theories of practice.
