Associate Professor Jane Dixon

Honorary Associate Professor

Biography

Associate Professor Jane Dixon is a Senior Fellow at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, Research School of Public Health. Her research takes place at the intersection of sociology and public health, with a focus on the cultural dynamics lying behind ways of living. She is particularly interested in how corporate strategy, government policy and civil society influence cultural transitions, and in the resulting social and health inequalities.

Her most recent books are a co-authored book on how different generations have experienced 5 major trends underlying changes to diet and physical activity, The Weight of Modernity (Springer 2012); a co-edited book dedicated to evolving understandings of the interactions between nature, society and public health, Health of People, Places and Planet: Reflections based on Tony McMichael’s four decades of contribution to epidemiological understanding (ANU Press 2015); and a co-edited collection illustrating the many approaches to studying the cultural determinants of health risks, When Culture Impacts Health (Elsevier 2013). She is a co-editor of a special symposium for Agriculture & Human Values (vol 30, no 2, 2013): 'From Seedling to Supermarket': a collection of papers which resulted from an ARC grant. She is on the editorial boards of Agriculture & Human Values and World Food Policy. She has been advising the International Union on Health Promotion and Education on their Food Security policy.
