Join us as Paula Atkinson helps us to explore the psychosocial aspects of weight and body shape, the broad range of social sciences including anthropology and sociology that create the way we think about weight, “health,” worth, and identity.
Over the course of this dynamic conference, we will explore the topics of fatphobia, size-ism, thin idealism, and weight stigma and how these intersect with other racism, classism, and forms of oppression as well as how they are present in groups. The role of body liberation and body justice will be included as we discuss how it intersects with diversity, equity, and inclusion.
This conference will be in person at the
Hyatt Regency Hotel, Cambridge, MD.
