Jack Durant

MA with Daniel Steel & Gunilla Öberg, 2022


At IRES Jack worked as part of the Egesta Lab studying the expert deliberation surrounding endocrine-disrupting chemical pollution. Supervised by Gunilla Oberg, Daniel Steel and Annegaaike Leopold, Jack’s research project involved a ‘brokered dialogue’ between two experts from different sides of the conversation, facilitating discussion between them and analysing their respective understandings of uncertainty in the field. The study found a substantial difference in the understood forms of uncertainty, as well as the generating factors. Since graduating, Jack has been working at an environmental non-profit in the UK called Youngwilders which facilitates small-scale, youth-led nature recovery projects.
