Fat Studies Journal
I am the editor of the new academic journal Fat Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Body Weight and Society.
Fat Studies is the first academic journal in the field of scholarship that critically examines theory, research, practices, policies and programs related to body weight and appearance. Content will include original research and overviews exploring the intersection of gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality, age, ability, and socioeconomic status.
Articles critically examine representations of fat in health and medical sciences, the Health at Every Size model, the pharmaceutical industry, psychology, sociology, cultural studies, legal issues, literature, pedagogy, art, theatre, popular culture, media studies, and activism.
