Overview

Henry Buller works principally in the area of non-human geographies, notably animal geographies. He is involved in a number of national and international research projects and professional activities that seek to bring a critical social science understanding to the issue of farm and working animal welfare in contemporary production systems and food supply chains. He also works on issues of wild species re-introduction and upon the conceptual and methodological approaches to social science framings and understandings of human/animal interactions.

Henry is currently leading a major collaborative 4-year research project (DIAL 2017-2021), funded by the ESRC and other agencies, into the innovative use of diagnostic procedures in farm animal health to reduce antimicrobial use in livestock agriculture.

He is also completing, as Co-I, a three-year EU funded consortium research project entitled ‘Hennovation’, exploring innovative practice-led solutions to welfare issues in laying hen production.

Henry is Visiting Professor at the Department of Animal Environment and Health, Swedish University of Agricultural Science (SLU), Uppsala.

Henry Buller has written and published widely on animal geographies, animals in the food sector and farm animal welfare, including a series of commissioned research reviews on ‘Animal Geographies’ for the journal Progress in Human Geography. He is co-author of the recently published book ‘Food and Animal Welfare’ (Bloomsbury Press, 2018) and is a contributory author to the Routledge Handbook of Human/Animal Studies and the Edinburgh Companion to Animal Studies.

Henry Buller is an appointed member of the UK’s Farm Animal Welfare Committee (FAWC) and Chairs the FAWC/Defra Welfare at Killing group.
