Schooled on Fat

Schooled on Fat: What Teens Tell Us About Gender, Body Image, and Obesity, written by Nicole Taylor, is an ethnographic exploration of how teens navigated fraught realities of body image within a high school culture that reinforced widespread beliefs about body size as a matter of personal responsibility while offering limited opportunity to exercise and an abundance of fattening junk foods. The Routledge Innovative Ethnographies Series webpage for Schooled on Fat features artistic interpretations by high school students, supplementary to the book, to provide rich, three-dimensional and personal representations of how teens experience body image.
