Current work and interests
Natalie is a PhD student, supervised by Dr Jean Adams and Dr Benjamin Hawkins, and is funded by the Harding Distinguished Postgraduate Scholarship Programme. Natalie’s PhD will involve studying how ‘obesity’ and fat bodies are socially constructed in the field of public health and exploring the ethical and social justice implications of problematising fat bodies in public health policy. She is particularly interested in developing the use of post-structural discourse theory and related critical approaches to public health policy analysis
