54) The Pursuit of Happiness

I was joined with Dr. Ashley Frawler: Researcher and Senior Lecturer in Criminology, Sociology, and Social Policy. We discussed the Pursuit of Happiness and how it has been manipulated and misrepresented for the public. 

Her research includes:

  • Mindfulness and the 'Psychological Impagination'

  • The value in ‘value’: An exercise for pluralizing economics instruction, Medicalization of social problems

  • Not very NICE: deviance, stigma, and nutritional guidelines related to healthy weight and obesity

  • “Unhappy News”: Process, Rhetoric, and Context in the Making of the Happiness Problem

  • Happiness Research: A Review of Critiques

Her book - "Semiotics of Happiness"
