Dr Nancy McHugh will be presenting a lecture titled “Food Fear” on Thursday March 26, 12:00-1:30 in LIB 101.

In “Food Fear”, Prof. Nancy McHugh analyzes the ways that we go about making knowledge and ignorance about food and its relationship to health.  She argues that these practices have led to the newer food movement of “clean eating,” which in turn has generated an early 21st century eating disorder, orthorexia, or righteous eating.

Dr Nancy McHugh is Professor of Philosophy at Wittenberg University in Ohio.  The recipient of an NSF grant for her research, McHugh is the author of multiple articles on feminist philosophy and the philosophy of science.  Her most recent book will appear later this year from SUNY Press – The Limits of Knowledge.
