Dr. Rosenbecker receives Bobet Faculty Fellowship

Dr. Karen Rosenbecker will begin research this summer on obesity in Greek Literature.  Her work will provide an overview of obesity in non-medical texts, specifically the literary conventions employed in describing obesity and the social attitudes about the condition. As this topic has been explored primarily in ancient medical texts, her project focused on representations in literature will be attractive to publishers and potentially to a non-specialist audience as well.
