F is for The Female Body

Over the next eight weeks this student plans to understand how the female body has physically changed over the last one hundred years compared to the fluxing views it holds in American society. She hopes to look at the views of women, men, literature, art, and how she herself sees the figure of the woman’s body. This student will be reading six books of anatomy, spirituality, the history of the woman’s body, views of the woman’s body through the lens of a zoologist, as well as a book of body poetry. Throughout this field study this student will keep a journal of her findings from the books and how she herself is forming views about herself and the women in her life. She will find and partake in any woman and body inspired workshops in Olympia or Seattle to immerse herself in different communities of women.
