A capital appetite: The political economy of sugar consumption

Join us for an insightful talk exploring the pervasiveness of sugar in the contemporary diet, and strategies proposed to change dietary habits.

The talk argues that the enduring commercial utility of sugar is that it helps dissolve barriers to accumulation. Whether suspending shelf-life, modifying meal times or encouraging over-eating, the properties of sucrose have been extremely useful in helping industrial food manufacturers to subvert the natural and cultural rules governing what can be eaten, when, and in what quantities.

No booking required.
