Author: Perram, Megan; Ensslin, Astrid; Rice, Carla; Riley, Sarah; Wilks, Christine; Fowlie, Hannah; Munro, Lauren; Bailey, K. Alysse
Abstract: “Writing New Bodies: Critical Co-design for 21st Century Digital-born Bibliotherapy” is a research project funded by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Insight Grant (2018-2020). Using methods of feminist participatory action research and critical community co-design to develop an interactive digital story app (i.e., digital fiction), this project creates a tool for media-enhanced bibliotherapy to help young women-identified and gender non-conforming individuals from diverse backgrounds build resilience to body image concerns. The project is a collaboration between digital humanities scholar Dr. Astrid Ensslin (Alberta), body image psychologists Drs. Carla Rice(Guelph)and Sarah Riley (Massey, NZ), as well as award-winning feminist digital fiction writer, artist, and game developer, Christine Wilks.
