Short Biography

Moss Norman is currently a postdoctoral fellow with the Simone de Beauvoir Institute at Concordia University. There, he is working alongside Dr. Geneviève Rail on a SSHRC-funded project exploring how diverse groups of women take up, understand, and experience their bodies in relation to dominant health messaging, particularly obesity-related messages. Previously, Moss was a postdoctoral fellow with a SSHRC funded Community-University Research for Recovery Alliance (CURRA) at Memorial University where he examined the quality of work and recreation experiences of rural Newfoundland youth. His research interests include the body, health, sport and physical activity, recreation and leisure, rurality, children and youth, and disability.
