Bergmann, Dr Iris
I am generally interested in the human animal relationship in the intersection of sustainability studies, ecological thought and social change for sustainability. I have lead a study on what factors lead Australians to support or actively reject factory farming. I am building on this work to further expand the scope of this research. One of my passions is the use of visual methods in exploring people’s beliefs, attitudes and perceptions. I am also engaged in visual practice myself mainly using photography. While I lived in Northern New South Wales, I was active in Wildlife rehabilitation for six years and supported WIRES as inaugural chairperson of their Northern Rivers Branch 2004-2006.
