Abstract [en]

This paper explores how a cohort of pre-service Health and Physical Education (HPE) teachers from an Australian university describe and construct discourses about body fat. Risk and uncertainty are characteristics of our current society. In this context, it is expected for people to understand the diverse ‘risks’ and engage in self-monitoring strategies (Garrett & Wrench, 2012). The well known ‘obesity epidemic’ is a major discourse in today’s society and the obesity epidemic is a clear indicative of a control society. Furthermore, panic is widely created through media campaigns using ‘alarming’ statistical information, mainly based in BMI levels. It has been suggested that HPE teachers usually have fat phobia tendencies (Sykes, 2009; Sykes & McPhail, 2008) and they can even transmit these beliefs and attitudes to their students (Yager & O’Dea, 2009). Taking a poststructuralist Foucauldian perspective, the aim of this paper is, therefore, to explore how these discourses about fatness have been constructed among pre-service HPE teachers and the effects that they may have on teaching practices.
