Darren PowellWe are honoured that Dr Darren Powell has joined our international and interdisciplinary research group. Dr Powell’s research interrogates the role of corporations – mostly food companies – and charities in schools. This includes a critical analysis of the various healthy lifestyles education resources and programmes that are provided free to primary schools and the ways in which certain notions of health are reproduced in ways that align with the private sectors’ best interests, but not necessarily the children’s. You can see some of his recent research here: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/13573322.2016.1192530
