A Healthy Appetite for Research

Professor John Germov brings intellectual gusto and a sociologist's palate to solving wicked health problems.

Professor John GermovWhat influences whether we lead a healthy or unhealthy lifestyle? What affects the choices we make about what we eat and drink? These are the kinds of questions that fascinate the sociologist in Professor John Germov.

'Personal preference of course plays a part in all these matters. Yet, there are distinct social patterns in how and what we eat. For example, personal preference can't explain "national" cuisines. Think of India and curry, Japan and sushi. There are always larger forces at work – social, cultural, economic and historical.'

Investigating these forces – what John refers to collectively as the "social appetite" – has resulted in his large body of research on the sociology of food and nutrition. He's examined the social determinants of food consumption and production, including the influence of gender and class on eating habits; the relationships between food, identity and body image; the public health impact of fast food and the rise of the 'slow food' movement; and how the Australian diet has changed.

This has been possible due to a ground-breaking interdisciplinary collaboration with a Dietitian scholar, which led to an international book for which he and his colleague are widely known – A Sociology of Food and Nutrition: The Social Appetite.

'Broadly you could say this work contradicts the old adage "You are what you eat". I've found the inverse to be true: what you eat tends to be strongly influenced by the conditions in which you live and work.'

After indulging his sociological passion for food for many years, John found himself developing an intellectual predilection for wine – a logical progression, he claims. 'I joke with my colleagues that since I was already studying food, it was natural to match this with a study of wine. And we are in the Hunter Valley after all.'

Surprisingly little research has been done on the wine sector in Australia, and particularly the Hunter. Nevertheless John is intent on changing this, through his leadership of the Wine Studies Research Network. This recently-formed interdisciplinary cluster of scholars from the humanities and social sciences is unearthing the history of the region's wine industry – the oldest in Australia – and unravelling the complex interactions between production, consumption, and the evolution of 'taste'. John himself has been collaborating extensively with an historian on Australia's rise as a nation of wine producers and wine drinkers.

His practice of interdisciplinary research ideally suits his role as President of the Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH). As President he aims to promote the significant contribution of research made by the arts, social sciences and humanities disciplines, which 'underpin public policies and programs, informing and shaping the "big issues" that are driving social and economic change – issues as diverse as the impact of an ageing population, the balance of land use and economic development, and understanding health behaviour.'

John's abiding interest in the social origins of health has led him also to investigate the darker side of drinking. Funded by an ARC Linkage grant and in partnership with University Colleges Australia and state health departments, he recently conducted a large study with several colleagues investigating the uses and abuses of alcohol by students on university campuses, with a focus on uncovering the effectiveness of harm minimisation strategies. While the study uncovered a concerning 'culture of intoxication', it also found that students use a variety of measures to minimise potential harms to themselves and others.

'One outcome of our project will be recommendations, based on all the evidence we've collected through surveys, interviews and focus groups, about the kinds of harm minimisation practices that could be introduced on campuses in an effective manner.'

This project stands at the intersection of what John calls his 'curiosity-driven research for the sake of understanding' and his growing engagement with 'intervention research to make a difference'. It also combines his interest in the sociology of food and drink with his other long-standing research interest in the social determinants of health – how living and working conditions contribute to ill-health, or help prevent it.

In this field John has been prolific, and he is known especially for his book Second Opinion: An Introduction to Health Sociology (5th edn), which was recently published in a Canadian edition. He has produced 19 books to date with prestigious publishers such as Oxford University Press, Melbourne University Press, Allen & Unwin, and Pearson; including his introductory text, Public Sociology: An Introduction to Australian Society, which has shaped the way sociology is taught and studied in Australia.

John leads the newly-formed Social Determinants of Health Research Group, and has been active in the Priority Research Centre for Gender, Health and Ageing.

One of his most recent projects – not predominantly research but undertaken in one of his managerial capacities – serendipitously links his knowledge of health issues with his early doctoral research on the sociology of work organisations. As leader of the University's Future Workforce Strategy, he is overseeing the transformation of UoN into a 'healthy university' using World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations for creating health-enhancing workplaces; these include everything from improving the physical environment to staff social and mental well-being to healthy food options.

'This project is enabling me to improve the social conditions in which people live and work so as to have a positive impact on their health. It's letting me live and breathe what I've been researching for years.'

The Faculty consists of three Schools: Creative Arts, Education, and Humanities and Social Science.

The Faculty prides itself on providing professionally relevant and socially engaged degree programs that prepare graduates for global citizenship. The Faculty’s mission is to create and share knowledge to inspire, enrich and transform humanity. Our goal is to be in the top 10 nationally and the top 200 globally for teaching and research excellence and equity in Creative Arts, Education, and Humanities and Social Science. We are currently ranked in the QS Top 200 for Education, Linguistics, and English. In the 2012 Excellence for Research in Australia (ERA) evaluation exercise, 80% of the Faculty's assessed research was rated as world standard, including the highest possible rating of 5 in the country for Social Work (well above world standard).

Strategic Planning and Future Workforce Portfolios

In addition to his PVC role, Professor Germov was a member of the University's Enterprise Bargaining team (2013-14), is a management representative on the Academic Staff Consultative Committee (ASCC), and in 2015 was appointed as Convenor of Strategic Planning for the University.  

John also leads the University-wide Future Workforce portfolio, which includes the implementation of a new performance management system, including a performance expectations framework for academic staff, leadership framework, staff career advantage package, and staff mobility and exchange program. Further initiatives include establishing the UON Academy for the professional development, recognition and support of conjoint and sessional academic staff; and Healthy UON, a campus-wide health promotion framework that addresses physical, social and mental well-being, including the introduction of smoke-free campuses from 2014 onwards. Professor Germov was also responsible for the development of UON's first Faculty-level Gender Equity Plan, which has subsequently served as a model for other faculties.

Research Expertise
Professor Germov is a sociologist with expertise in mixed methods social research, specialising in the social determinants of health, public health nutrition policy, weight control, dieting and body image, and the social origins of food and alcohol habits. He has an international reputation in the field of health and food sociology, particularly via his books, Second Opinion (Oxford University Press) and A Sociology of Food and Nutrition: The Social Appetite (Oxford University Press).

Professor Germov has had a significant influence on his discipline of sociology. His text, Public Sociology: An Introduction to Australian Society (now in its 3rd edition), has shaped the way sociology is taught and studied in Australia. John's highly-cited social determinants of health reader, 'Second Opinion' (5th edition), has been the market-leading Australian book for over 15 years. John was co-author of the ALTC-funded scoping study, Teaching Sociology in Australia (2009), was a member of the Discipline Reference Group which authored the Sociology Threshold Learning Outcomes (TLOs), published in 2012 by The Australian Sociological Association (TASA), and co-edited Histories of Australian Sociology (MUP 2005) - the leading account of the development of sociology in Australia. In the mid-2000s, in the role of Program Convenor of the Bachelor of Social Science, John developed an innovative prescribed sequence of core courses addressing social research methods, social theory, and social policy, along with a work-integrated learning stream throughout all three years of the degree. As part of his ongoing commitment to ensuring students have the requisite academic skills to prosper at university, early in his career he authored three university-level academic study skills texts; and most recently the third edition of his best-selling book Get Great Marks for your Essays, Reports and Presentations (Allen & Unwin) was published in 2011.

To examine the effectiveness of interventions aimed at improving physical activity, diet, and/or weight-related behaviors amongst university/college students. Five online databases were searched (January 1970 to April 2014). Experimental study designs were eligible for inclusion. Data extraction was performed by one reviewer using a standardized form developed by the researchers and checked by a second reviewer. Data were described in a narrative synthesis and meta-analyses were conducted when appropriate. Study quality was also established. Forty-one studies were included; of these, 34 reported significant improvements in one of the key outcomes. Of the studies examining physical activity 18/29 yielded significant results, with meta-analysis demonstrating significant increases in moderate physical activity in intervention groups compared to control. Of the studies examining nutrition, 12/24 reported significantly improved outcomes; only 4/12 assessing weight loss outcomes found significant weight reduction. This appears to be the first systematic review of physical activity, diet and weight loss interventions targeting university and college students. Tertiary institutions are appropriate settings for implementing and evaluating lifestyle interventions, however more research is needed to improve such strategies.

This article explores male perceptions and attitudes toward violence against women in Indonesia. It analyzes interview data from Indonesian men collected as part of a large multimethod Australian government-funded project on masculinities and violence in two Asian countries. Reluctance to talk about violence against women was evident, and the accounts of those men who did respond referred to three justificatory discourses: denial, blaming the victim, and exonerating the male perpetrator. The findings support continuation of government and nongovernmental organization (NGO) projects aimed at both empowering women and reeducating men. © The Author(s) 2014.

This paper reports on data from a 2009-2010 project on masculinity and violence, part of which was conducted in Indonesia. The data here come from semi-structured interviews with 86 men in five cities, with minor reference to survey findings. Using a Foucauldian interpretive framework, we focus primarily on how these Indonesian men view police intervention in comparison to resolving the problem of violence within their community through mediation. The issue here is that while community mediation approaches are regarded positively, at present, it only seems to be religious leaders who are trusted to resolve conflicts effectively through this approach. Suspicion of mediation interventions and other measures that are tied to the authority of the state means that the promise of service-oriented policing reforms may not be effectively implemented. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

A qualitative comparative case study was conducted to compare and contrast food taboos and avoidance practices during pregnancy among Orang Asli or indigenous Temiar women in four distinct locations that represent different lifestyle experiences and cultural practices. Through snowballing sampling, a total of 38 participants took part in five focus groups: one group each in Pos Simpor and Pos Tohoi in Kelantan state, one group in Batu 12, Gombak in Selangor state, and two groups in a regroupment scheme (RPSOA) in Kuala Betis, Kelantan. All the transcripts were coded, categorised and 'thematised' using the software package for handling qualitative data, NVivo 8. Variant food prohibitions were recorded among the Temiar women residing in different locations, which differ in food sources and ways of obtaining food. Consumption of seventeen types of food items was prohibited for a pregnant Temiar woman and her husband during the prenatal period. Fear of difficulties during labour and delivery, convulsions or sawan, harming the baby (such as foetal malformation), and twin pregnancy seemed to trigger many food proscriptions for the pregnant Temiar women, most of which have been passed on from generation to generation. The findings of this study confirm that beliefs about food restrictions are strong among those Temiar living a traditional lifestyle. However, those who have adopted a more modern lifestyle also preserve them to some extent.

Sociology in Australia: A Scoping Study$100,000

The project scoped the key issues facing the discipline of Sociology in the Australian university sector. There has been little disciplinary research or professional activity in the area of quality assurance in Sociology at Australian universities, and limited information is available about the range or extent of teaching practices, graduate attributes and destinations, and employer satisfaction with Sociology teaching. Little is systematically known about the extent and nature of Sociology teaching in Australian universities. This scoping project provides an evidence-based foundation for future investigations and interventions to improve educational quality in the discipline, consistent with the federal Government higher education reform agenda. The project was endorsed by The Australian Sociological Association (TASA), who continue to play a key role in the dissemination of the findings.
