TEDxYYC talk discusses “Food as Entertainment”

On May 25, 2012, Libin member Dr. Charlene Elliott PhD spoke at the 2012 TEDxYYC event on the topic of “Food as Entertainment.” She is the Canada Research Chair in Food Marketing, Policy and Health at the University of Calgary. She is an Associate Professor of Communication and holds a join appointment with the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Kinesiology. Her research aims to explore the complex nature of children’s food marketing, and to study what it means — in terms of dietary habits and health — to promote food using particular types of marketing appeals. Her works probe both the formal and informal regulatory approaches that seek to direct the consumption practices of Canadians. She has provided input and recommendations on federal and international initiatives pertaining to food, labelling and policy.
