Mel is in Guatemala this week so Raechel had the pleasure of sitting down with media studies scholar Melissa (“Mish”) Zimdars! Raechel asks Mish to share her analysis of representations of fatness (and the intersections of race, gender, and disability) in the media, fat acceptance, and the social construction of health as a moral imperative. See below for more resources!
