New research by University of Calgary professor Charlene Elliott published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health, has found that children prefer the taste of foods wrapped in decorative wrappings, and that aesthetics may actually play a stronger role than branding in influencing preschoolers’ taste preferences.
This year, three exciting group study programs are being offered by the Department of Communication and Culture: Food Culture in Spain, Ireland: Film, Art, and Culture; and Berlin Summer School. All three programs are composed of credit courses and fulfill undergraduate student's intercultural requirements. Programs are open to students in all disciplines. Applications are now open and students are being interviewed and accepted on an ongoing basis.
