Project Details


Infections with drug-resistant bacteria threaten to become the most common cause of death by 2050. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has gained a foothold in places such as hospitals and farms where antibiotic-usage is part of production. This project develops the concept of biotic socialities (BS) in order to comprehend the transmission of AMR across species and to address the theoretically and methodological complexities of more-than-human social networks. Furthermore, this project is based in trans-disciplinary collaboration and methods necessary for research into the social and biological worlds of people, pigs, and microbes.
The project is funded by AUFF NOVA.
