Les Levidow

Les Levidow is a Senior Research Fellow at the Open University with a special interest in controversial agricultural technologies, especially agbiotech and bioenergy, as well as alternatives to agri-industrial systems. He edits the journal Science as Culture, which critically analyses the underlying frameworks, assumptions and terms of reference of science and its impact on modern society. The journal emphasizes the values, interests, ideology and purposes of modern science -- aspects which would otherwise remain hidden under the guise of 'scientific' neutrality and objectivity.
