“Does my ad look big in this?”
– Feminist responses to corporate advertising
A guest talk with Nadia Craddock
Tuesday 4th December 2018
Mild West Room, Hamilton House, Stokes Croft, BS1 3QY
Feminist movements were amongst the earliest agitators against sexism in consumer marketing. From the consciousness-raising cultures of women’s groups of the 1970s to the Beach Body Ready protests of 2016, advertising has been recognised as a place where gender roles, stereotypes and inequalities are reproduced and re-enforced.
Join Adblock Bristol and Bristol Zero Tolerance for a guest presentation from Nadia Craddock on the subject of body image and sexism in corporate advertising.
Nadia Craddock is a body image researcher and PhD candidate at the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR) at the University of the West of England. Her current work explores whether big business can foster positive body image, and if so how and under what conditions. In addition to her PhD research, Nadia produces and hosts the Centre for Appearance Research’s monthly podcast, Appearance Matters.
