May Friedman

Associate Professor

May Friedman’s research looks at unstable identities, including bodies that do not conform to traditional racial and national or aesthetic lines.  Most recently much of May’s research has focused on intersectional approaches to fat studies considering the multiple and fluid experiences of both fat oppression and fat activism.  Drawing on a range of arts-based methods including digital storytelling as well as analyses of treasured garments, May has explored meaning making and representation in relation to embodiment and experience.
