Faculty Dr. Michael S. Bruner, Communication

Communication Professor Dr. Michael S. Bruner had his article, “Fat Politics: A Comparative Study,” published in M/C Journal: A Journal of Media and Culture, Vol. 18, No. 3 (2015). Drawing upon popular magazines, newspapers, blogs, Web sites, and videos, this essay compares the media framing in public discourse of six, “fat” political figures from around the world. The analysis begins with public discourse surrounding William Howard Taft, the 330 pound, twenty-seventh President of the United States. The article explores the medicalization of “fat” and phenomena such as “fat shaming.” The final section helps readers take a more critical perspective on fat politics.
