Looking Good: Body Ideals, Image and Teenage Girls

Bodily dissatisfaction among teenage girls is commonly explained in terms of the negative effects of media images. But this model of media cause and effects rests on a set of assumptions about how selves are formed, and often completely ignores the everyday lives of the girls themselves. Drawing from her ethnographic fieldwork in a London secondary school, Sarah Winkler-Reid, Newcastle University, will explore what this view from the ground can tell us about why so many teenage girls are unhappy with their bodies.

A podcast of this talk will be available following the event at our You Tube Podcast Channel here
