Food Avoidance and Food Aversion 2 Thursday April 25th, 2013
I. Fat and Moral Panic
Julier is a sociologist who looks at the political economy of obesity.
Society, mainstream media, and workplace discriminate against the fat.
o There is a moral panic; people say there is an "obesity epidemic" that needs to be
solved.
o Certain aspects and sectors of society stand to benefit from obesity.
II. Eating disorders and gender
Anorexia has existed for hundreds of years.
In Bynum's piece, Lidwina's food avoidance unearths fragility in clergy, who are literate,
have money and land, and are male.
Lidwina's body stops functioning normally. Instead it secretes healing fluids, and sheds
magical skin/body parts.
o Religious women, lower than her on the scale, rally behind her. They find
empowerment in someone above them.
o The upper echelons of society are challenged because Lidwina emerges as a
prominent figure, and a source of salvation, control, and hope. The clergy
attempts to discredit her feats and trick her.
Bruch- Psychiatrist (MD). Sees body as a machine. Sees more fault in familial interactions.
Bordo- Teaches philosophy. Sees body as intellectual.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
