In this panel session, we seek to explore various Geographies of Beauty through images collected in the field. In order to gain a better understanding of how beauty and ideals of beauty are affected by space and vice versa, we will be presenting several images each that exemplify standards of beauty and beauty norms in each of our field sites. This will be followed by a broader discussion of how images help us understand beauty and its space within feminist geography. A particular goal of this session is to connect with feminist scholars working broadly in beauty and fashion.
