Beekeeping Academy hosts Postgraduate Fellow from Harvard University

Haley Benbow is a Postgraduate Fellow from Harvard University who is in Slovenia to study beekeeping and its relation to Slovenian culture. She will be working in partnership with the Beekeeping Academy of Slovenia, Agricultural Institute of Slovenia, through September 2024. Her academic background is in food studies, public health, and environmental science, but with this project, she is taking an anthropological approach. She is interested in learning as much as possible through visits to Slovenian cultural institutions, participating in apiculture activities, and speaking with people working in all aspects of beekeeping and its related products.
