CMC 320 - Political Economy of Body and Food


What’s wrong with the ways we relate to our own bodies, to others’ bodies, to eating, and to food - and what can we do about it? This course examines the political and economic interests behind body and beauty ideals, body image, body dissatisfaction, eating disorders, steroid abuse, our cultural fear and hatred of fat, weight-based prejudice, and inequalities related to the current food system.
