The aim of my project is to examine how fat, heterosexual romantic and sexual intimacy is constructed in contemporary popular Thai and US romance novels. I wish to investigate how fat romance novels construct, perpetuate, and perhaps challenge understandings of gender, body and relationships in two different cultures and social contexts.
