If you’ve been following this Intercom series during National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, you know that it’s not always obvious when someone is heading toward developing an eating disorder, or even if they are living with a diagnosable eating disorder. You may know someone who shows clear symptoms, or you may recognize more subtle signs in someone – or yourself. Where do you start to get help?

We’re in the midst of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW) with their message that “Hindsight is 20/20”. The focus this year is on acknowledging that eating disorders can affect anyone and that everyone struggling with an eating disorder, no matter who they are or where they are in recovery, deserves to get the treatment and support they need. By looking back at the past year’s trials and successes, we can increase awareness and understanding of eating disorders and can not only help encourage recovery but also be a part of prevention efforts.

It’s back again: February 24-March 1 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and this year is building on last year’s message of inclusivity in the eating disorder community. By looking back and sharing the struggles and successes of individuals’ efforts toward recovery, we can continue the conversation and give courage to others to continue their efforts toward health and self-acceptance.

Eating disorders can affect anyone. No one is immune, regardless of age, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, body shape or weight. Teens and young adults are particularly vulnerable to developing eating disorders, and recent research suggests that transgender people may also be at increased risk. Up to 30% of college women and men meet the criteria for the illness, and 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life.

Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Culture and Communication as an online course during Winter 2020 (Jan 6-17, 2020).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements.
