Hungry for Words
This project focuses on the problems and perspectives of articulating, communicating and understanding anorexia nervosa and other eating disorders affecting men and boys.
Hear about some of the creative approaches used to explore and give voice to the issues.
We are excited to share that our German partner, Landesfachstelle Essstoerungen NRW, has adapted our training tool on eating disorders.
We're delighted to announce that the Hungry for Words project won the Research Project of the Year (Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences) in the Times Higher Education Awards 2021 - the "Oscars" of higher education.
We'd like to dedicate the award to the boys and men who shared their experiences of eating disorders with us - with courage to overcome stigma, creativity, and trust in us.
