Miło nam poinformować, iż w ramach seminariów Unit for Biocultural Variation and Obesity, w czwartek 7-ego marca dr Zofia Boni wygłosi wykład „The Social Life of Childhood Obesity in Poland”.
The Unit for Biocultural Variation and Obesity (UBVO) at the University of Oxford addresses this issue by bringing together scholars of different disciplines to identify and work on multidisciplinary problems in obesity, and of the socio-cultural and political correlates and drivers of this phenomenon in particular. Discipline areas involved in collaboration at Oxford include anthropology, public health, epidemiology, politics and international relations, economic history, and sociology. Research issues include the examination of constructs of body size and embodiment, biological and social life histories, consumption and affluence, media and marketing, and obesity and evolutionary adaptation. Instruments for collaborative research under examination include ethnographies, narrative and textual analyses, cultural consensus modeling, evolutionary life history theory, political economics, history and human biology, and epidemiology of diet and lifestyle.
