Teaching Fat Studies: From Conception to Reception
Women's and Gender Studies
The field of fat studies has undergone tremendous growth in recent years, with colleges now offering courses in this area. The authors' investigation sought to identify and describe courses centered on this topic. Their solicitation of syllabi detected four fat studies courses currently being offered, along with two courses focused on Health at Every Size. Their inquiry also revealed six courses, four from the health sciences, which contain significant fat studies content. The authors sought to illustrate the content and pedagogical practices associated with these courses, discussing directions for future research in the teaching of fat studies.
