Fat Studies is becoming an interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary field of
study that confronts and critiques cultural constraints against notions
of “fatness” and “the fat body”; explores fat bodies as they live in, are
shaped by, and remake the world; and creates paradigms for the development
of fat acceptance or celebration within mass culture.

understanding of these texts than has historically been available to the
critic.
