Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary

Abstract

Fat shaming as a concept captures all the bias ingrained in cultural values, economic orders, and hegemonic ideals that stigmatize overweight or obese bodies. From a culturalperspective, media analysis of fat shaming allows us to address the body stratification that societies have produced, that is, what now is generally known as a somatic order. The entry analyzes the cultural effects of normalization and body politics.
