VENI Grant for Liliya Leopold (UvA)

Liliya Leopold (Postdoc UvA) received an NWO grant for her project ‘Social Norms, Body Weight, and Well-Being: A Multi-Method Comparison of Germany, Korea, the Netherlands, and the United States'

About the project: Which body weight is socially accepted in modern societies? Do body-weight norms differ across countries? How do these norms affect the psychological well-being of those who conform or deviate? The aim of this project is to answer these questions using an innovative multi-method research design combining survey and experimental methods.
