In this episode of Engaging the Big Questions we will ask Dr. Elizabeth Crisp Crawford: How the Tobacco Advertising Industry Targeted College Colleges: Cigarette Advertising in Student Media, 1920-1980. 

The Academy of Liberal Arts Integrative Learning Initiative invites you to join us for a talk with Dr. Elizabeth Crisp Crawford, author of Tobacco Goes to College: Cigarette Advertising in Student Media, 1920-1980. Dr. Crawford positions her book as a work of history on the subject she claims “deserves our attention because of the advertisers’ ability to control the media they supported, our criticism because of the dangerous product they advocated, and our admiration because of their quality and innovation” (p. 5). In one of her final points, Crawford establishes with extensive research how the inventiveness of the tobacco advertising industry was one of the most effective yet dangerously unhealthy marketing practices in history.
