"Fatties Cause Global Warming": Fat Pedagogy and Environmental Education
Russell, Constance; Cameron, Erin; Socha, Teresa; McNinch, Hannah
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v18 p27-45 2013
Environmental education is one site of many that reinforces dominant obesity discourses and weight-based oppression through privileging fit, able bodies. Using personal narratives and insights from the nascent field of fat studies, we offer a critical analysis of obesity discourse in environmental writing in general and environmental education in particular. We argue that intersectional analyses of embodiment, abjection, and crisis rhetoric could be generative for both environmental education and fat studies.
