Research Overview

My ESRC-funded doctoral research seeks to explore the experience of issues around food, eating and weight among people of transgender experience and to develop a nuanced understanding of the ways in which certain eating practices and ways of relating to food are used by trans people in relation to embodiment and negotiations of the body in terms of the ways it is experienced as well as externally defined/assigned. I also assume a critical stance towards the existing body of research in this area, which is largely concerned with the attempt to identify group-wide general characteristics as measured using quantitative scales.
