Falling In Love with Food: Connection and Disconnection in Food, Diet and Fashion Advertising
Date: February 24, 2015
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Willie Miller Auditorium
City: Daytona Beach
State: FL
Details: Dr. Kilbourne will illustrate how we are taught and encouraged to use food as a way to deal with the pain of disconnection and as a way to connect, to find love and even passion. This presentation explores the origins and terrible consequences of our national obsession with excessive thinness or the perfect body ideal. Most women, and many girls, boys and men, suffer from this obsession, not just those who develop eating disorders. The presentation examines ads for rich foods and junk food, ads for cigarettes, and ads for diet products. It also illustrates how the ideal body image has changed in the past thirty or forty years, and explores the fact that thinness has become a moral issue (the menage a trois that women are made to feel ashamed of these days is with Ben and Jerry). It offers a new way to think about life-threatening eating disorders and provides a well-documented critical perspective on the social impact of advertising.

America The Beautiful 3 Film Screening and Q&A
Date: February 11, 2015
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Tangeman University Center (TUC) Great Hall
City: Cincinnati
State: OH
Details: Admission is complimentary. RSVP at http://goo.gl/forms/UQKnRv8EP0 Director Darryl Roberts and special guests will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film. SYNOPSIS: The third installment of America the Beautiful explores the sexualization of our youth and its harrowing consequences. Award-winning director Darryl Roberts teams up with industry experts to delve into the problematic reality behind child beauty pageants, teen pregnancy, and rape culture. Beneath the glossy, doctored perfection of the images presented in pop culture, there is a dark underbelly leading us to question our cultural landscape. Who is at fault for perpetuating these harmful standards? Is it corporate greed in advertising? Is it pop culture? Could parents be to blame? Darryl Roberts speaks with industry experts like Jean Kilbourn, Carolyn Costin, Steven Genarro, and Gail Dines along with teenagers to answer these questions. In doing so he creates an honest portrait of this dangerously over-sexualized culture, while also highlighting the positive strides being made to bring change. America the Beautiful III portrays how women grow up believing they only have two choices: to be desirable or invisible. While boys are raised in a porn culture that makes it difficult for them to conceptualize healthy relationships with women. This film looks beyond the superficial into the psyches of our youth and those that perpetrate this epidemic of over-sexualization.
