Body Work: The Social Construction of Women's Bodies

Body Work: The Social Construction of Women's Bodies


Price: Rp371 500


Are scientific 'facts' enough to define and assess a socially mediated conception of adequacy? Experimental psychology formulates and resolves research questions about 'body image' in terms of the pathology of particular women. What it does not focus on, however, are the discursive practices at work in its own assumptions. This can lead to the perpetuation rather than questioning of dominant narratives about women and the nature of body image dissatisfaction. With acute cross-disciplinary awareness Body Image: The Social Construction of Women's Bodies exposes the assumptions at work in the methods and status of experimental approaches. Penetrating beyond the usual dichotomy between experimental and popular psychology, this book illuminates some of the ways in which women's magazines have uncritically embraced experimental psychology's treatment of the issue. Drawing on her experience in clinical psychology, Sylvia Blood highlights the damaging effects of uncritically experimental views of body image. She goes on to elaborate not only an alternative model of discursive construction but also the implications of such a theory for clinical practice.
