"Vermin, Victims and Disease: British Debates over Bovine Tuberculosis and Badgers" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019) provides the first critical history of the controversy over whether to cull wild badgers to control the spread of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in British cattle. This question has plagued several professional generations of politicians, policymakers, experts and campaigners since the early 1970s. Questions of what is known, who knows, who cares, who to trust and what to do about this complex problem have been the source of scientific, policy, and increasingly vociferous public debate ever since.

In this launch event, the author, Dr. Angela Cassidy will respond to a panel of speakers from across the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities who will comment on the book and the ongoing controversy.

Panel:

Staffan Mueller-Wille
