Title of project: 
Special collections: Eating disorders in Britain, 1980-2010
Proposal summary: 

I am interested in the ways in which eating disorders were being discussed (both popularly and amongst academics/practitioners) and researched in the late 20th/early 21st century. I’m especially interested in ALSPAC because of the specific interest in the impact on eating disorders on maternity (a relatively unusual approach at the time.) I am only interested in material on the eating disorder research components of ALSPAC
