Jill Richardson Publishes Dissertation Work

Jill Richardson’s dissertation research examines how a Montana-based non-profit, Blackfoot Challenge (BC), facilitates the exchange of knowledge between experts and laypeople for carnivore management.  Her article titled, “The Cows May Safely Graze: Placing Expert-Lay Relationships at the Center of Overcoming the Expert-Lay Knowledge Divide” was recently published in “Rural Sociology.”  She has another paper that has been accepted by “Society and Natural Resources” titled “They Need to be Managed: Hunters’ and Ranchers’ Narratives of Increased Acceptance of Wolves After a Decade of Wolf Hunting.”
