Event description

Description

In a captivating mix of memoir and cultural critique, Lee Kofman casts a questioning eye on the myths surrounding our conception of physical perfection and what it’s like to live in a body that deviates from the norm. She reveals the subtle ways we are all influenced by the bodies we inhabit, whether our differences are pronounced or noticeable only to ourselves. She talks to people of all shapes, sizes and configurations and takes a hard look at the way media and culture tell us how bodies should and shouldn’t be.

Dr Lee Kofman is joined by journalist and writer Jenny Valentish to discuss Imperfect and the issues surrounding body image and appearance diversity.
