Dr Karin Eli

Postdoctoral Researcher

Karin Eli is a medical anthropologist whose research focuses on eating disorders, obesity, and the body, alongside food activism, social class, and social mobility.

Karin’s research ranges from the intimacies of narrative, identity, and embodied experience to the structures of socioeconomic stratification and food governance. Through her interlinked research foci, Karin interrogates eating disorders and obesity as multi-level conditions that call for integrated phenomenological and structural approaches.
