Amaranta Herrero Cabrejas from the Autonomous University of Barcelona will return to study at CSEC next year ( March - July 2012), having received a scholarship from the 'mobility program' of the Ministry of Science in Spain. Her thesis title is 'The Anatomy of a socio-environmental conflict: the case of the opencast coal mining in the Laciana Valley (Leon- Spain)'. Claire Waterton and Brian Wynne are very happy to help supervise Amaranta on this fascinating and important research about open-cast mining, and the way such mining is being technologised and characterised as a 'green option' in Spain and Europe.
