Fatness, Body-Size Stigma and Thin Privilege

Monday, March 11, 2019 - 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

Panelists: Fabio Fontana (Kinesiology), Susan Hill (CETL), Jesse Swan (English)

This panel discussion focuses on research and analysis of the changing socio-cultural perspectives on body size and fatness. Presenters will highlight research on anti-fat biases of exercise-related professionals and weight-related bullying, historical ideas about fat bodies and current medical research on fatness and health, and fat stigma and the hidden presumptions of thin privilege. If you are interested in exploring the social, medical, financial, cultural, and moral appraisals of body size, join us!
