The project involved contributions from a diverse team including: Professor Paul Crawford, Professor Ron Carter, Dr Nelya Koteyko (Leicester), Dr Martin Doering (Hamburg), Professor Brian Brown (De Montford), Dr Maurizio Meloni and Dr Rusi Jaspal.
The many peer-reviewed articles produced during this period include: the first social science article to be published on 'Climategate' following the affair, a groundbreaking piece on nano images, and the first and only study of poems written during the foot and mouth crisis.

Professor Nerlich has been working on language and metaphor for over twenty years, and is a member of the Academy of Social Sciences. She uses methods and ideas from cognitive linguistics, social and cultural anthropology, the history of science, and science and technology studies to analyse cultural imagination and the contemporary portrayal of issues related to health and illness, emerging technologies (bio, cogno, nano, synbio, geo-engineering), and climate change.
