Theorising Gender, Theorising Fat: the Material-Semiotics of the Obesogenic Environment For Professional Women Weight-Cyclers
This paper reframes the dominant neo-liberal discourse of fat bodies as an outcome of personal consumption failure, by examining the life-narratives of two professional female weight-cyclers through a material-semiotic lens. In doing so it examines the consumption practices around the emergence of the body as obese within the obesogenic environment.
