Our former student Rosa Martín Sarroca wins the award for the best TFG of  the 50th Anniversary of the Faculty of Arts, entitled “Plus-SizeFemale Bodies on the Small Screen:  A Perpetuation of Stigmas or a Step Forward Towards Inclusivity?” and  supervised by Dr. Kateřina Valentová. The essay aims to analyze the  representation of plus-size female characters and their agency in the  American TV series Girls (2012), My Mad Fat Diary (2013), Insatiable  (2018), and Euphoria (2019), and the English Sweet Magnolias (2020). The  results of this research confirm that in our current society, female bodies  are more diverse than ever and the entertainment media fail to offer a  sufficiently broad and realistic representation of this diversity.
