Newhouse-based Project BodyTalk featured on national radio program
A nationally-syndicated public radio program will feature a segment on Newhouse magazine professor Harriet Brown’s Project BodyTalk on Thursday, Jan. 6, at 8 p.m. EST.
“51% – The Women’s Perspective,” produced by WAMC-FM in Albany, will air an interview with Professor Brown and several audio commentaries recorded by Newhouse students and faculty for Project BodyTalk. Brown created the project in 2009 as a forum for personal stories about body image, food, eating and weight. Project BodyTalk participants record their thoughts and experiences and their audio files are posted on the BodyTalk website.
“So many people–especially women–struggle with feelings of shame, anger,
frustration and self-loathing about their bodies,” Brown says. “I created Project BodyTalk to literally give voice to people dealing with such feelings, and also to inspire and challenge all of us to create relationships with food and our bodies that sustain rather than debilitate us.”
