Zoe Nyssa Receives Consortium on Law and Values Grant
Zoe Nyssa was the recipient of one of eight Consortium on Law and Values grants for summer 2008. This grant makes it possible for her to conduct interviews and a survey of conservationists attending the Society for Conservation Biology conference this July as part of a pilot study for her dissertation on animal conservation discourses.
â€œStudying Biodiversity, Saving Biodiversity: Investigating Expert Constructions of Public Understanding of Conservation Scienceâ€?â€”Zoe Nyssa, PhD student, Writing Studies ($5,954 awarded)
Each investigator receiving this award becomes a "Consortium Student Scholar." He or she will present a written report on the funded work to the full Consortium in 2009 and the project will be featured on the Consortium website. Awardees may also be asked to present at a Consortium-sponsored conference.
