Kimberly L. Howell

Kimberly L. Howell, Ph.D.


My area of research and doctoral dissertation surrounds issues of body image, race, and the effects of place with additional focus on commercialization of body image through various media outlets.  My work seeks to mend the fissures between body and soul by focusing on artistic expression, active imagination, dream tending and other Jungian practices.
