tan lines #1 : introduction

6 Jul

My proposed subject for tranSport is to look into the phenomenon of tan lines and skin color practices as the main reason people do ‘sports’ today.

I plan to look into the historical positions of skin colors, particular in the case os swimmers and other forms of sports that are highly exposed to the sun. This will also include the variety of tan lines that might have not been an interest back in the past, as it might have been linked to low-wage workers and farmers.

This will then be used to identify how the society today looks differently at the sportsmen and sportswomen body as the objective of exercising has varied. I plan to look into current media portrayal of tan lines for additional materials.
