GSWS 313 - Fat Studies: Bodies, Culture, and Politics


4 credits
Introduction to the burgeoning area of Fat Studies, with a focus on fatness in the U.S. today.  We will interrogate the war on obesity, moral panics around body size, the construct of fitness, health at every size models, and fat-positivity in order to deconstruct the meanings of fatness.  We will analyze the ways that gender, sexuality, race, class, and disability intersect in relation to fatness.  This course will also examine the interrelationships between feminist and queer politics and fat activism.  Students are recommended, but not required, to take GSWS 201  before this course.  Approved for University Studies (Integration - Strand H).
