Canadian Food History: Ethiopian Famine, April 5, 2023
Canadian Food History: Calling All Women, May 24, 2023
In this program, we will explore the reaction of the Canadian media to the Ethiopian Famine of 1984, and how this influenced federal approaches to the crisis. Information, particularly first-hand reports emanating from famine-stricken territories in Ethiopia, fueled the Canadian media’s call for the government to help. Somewhat paradoxically, a shift in the media’s agenda produced a loss of interest in the famine several months later.
