Actor networks, economic imperatives and the heterogeneous geography of the contemporary poultry industry
MetadataShow full item record
The relationships between science and capital in the contemporary poultry industry are theorized from an Actor-Network and Complex-Systems perspective. Regulationist approaches are criticized for employing functionalist reasoning. An empirical examination of funding and research patterns in the University of Georgia's Department of Poultry Science is offered to illustrate the potential of this novel theoretical perspective.
