Research on Body Image

MEDIA: louisadickins Tue 01-Oct-13 12:22:24

I am currently undertaking research for my final year BA Geography dissertation at The University of Nottingham.
This will involve a study of perceptions regarding the body at work and at home and other leisure spaces. I have chosen this topic as recent literature has emphasised a growth in pressure on women to maintain an increasingly slim body shape as a result of pressure from various variables at work, home and the media. It will cover a number of issues relating to the understanding of the body.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would be willing to volunteer for an interview over skype or email.
I will ensure confidentiality on behalf of all participants and pseudonyms will be given. It should take no longer than 10-15 minutes.
If you are willing to participate in a semi-structured interview please add a contact name, number and email address or email me on

Thank you for your time,

Louisa Dickins
