Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Nov 4, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338)j, DeWitt Wallace Library

Eric Carter, Geography, will present “Making the Blue Zones: Marketing Healthy Places in a Neoliberal Era" The Blue Zones Project is a public-private partnership to promote healthy living in selected Iowa cities. Carter’s paper focuses on exploring the ideological roots and analyzing the political discourse of the Blue Zones Project. While the Blue Zones concept reflects a welcome shift towards geographical or place-based notions of health, it may also be a neoliberal public policy model that glosses over complex social determinants of health. All faculty welcome. Lunch will be served.
