>From the Tap to the Bottle - understanding the rise of bottled water

        Professor Gay Hawkins

Bottled water is now the fastest growing market in the global beverage industry. This lecture explores the causes behind the phenomenal increase in bottled water consumption over the last thirty years. How is it that bottles now seem to be everywhere and people are constantly sipping? What does this new form of drinking mean for the future of the tap?

About the Presenter:

Professor Gay Hawkins is the Deputy Director of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies, UQ. She researches in two key areas: ecological humanities, materiality and biopolitics, and the relations between government, media and everyday life. She has published widely on the institutional, political and theoretical implications of these areas. She brings to this research an innovative interdisciplinary approach that is concerned with the intersections between cultural and material practices and forms of rule. Her most recent books are The Ethics of Waste: how we relate to rubbish (2006) and, co-authored with Ien Ang and Lamia Dabboussy, The SBS Story: the challenge of cultural diversity (2008).

This lecture will be chaired by Professor Graeme Turner, Director, CCCS, UQ.  Members of the public are invited to attend this free lecture, after which light refreshments will be served.
