Food for Thought: Consumerism, Children and Risk Society
A series of lectures by Professor Steve Kline, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver
In a series of lectures based on his forthcoming book Fast Food, Sluggish Kids (Palgrave) Prof. Stephen Kline sets out to reposition the debates about marketing to kids within the context of a risk society.
The departure for these lectures is the growing concern about the rise of child obesity rates and the multiple public and policy debates taking place about its causes and costs. This health issue is unpacked from various communication perspectives which are explored through a series of empirical studies which examine the various ways that children’s consumption patterns and lifestyle choices are culturally embedded in the mediated social communication of the global market.
