This edition of the UNT Speaks Out series highlights research and resources related to bodies and body image in the UNT community. Ranging from historical research on representations of little men in 18th-century England, to gendered fashions that shape and restrict the body, to research on the impact of body image on self-esteem and identity, the human form is a generative object of study for UNT scholars. This event features faculty, staff and students who investigate bodies and who offer critical services to UNT students.
