Still catching up!Â Second: Registration is open for the fat studies conference in Sydney in September.Â I’m gonna be there.Â So are a bunch of other bloggers, activists, and academics, like Natalie, Bri, Kath, Francis, Dr Samantha Thomas, and Rachel (who most of you don’t know, and who isn’t strictly fat studies, but she’s asked me to let you all know she’s not evil.Â I’m pretty sure she’s not evil, y’all.)Â Oh yeah, and Charlotte Cooper is the keynote. CHARLOTTE COOPER, YOU GUYS! And the whole shebang is being being run by Samantha Murray, who is one of my long-term intellectual crushes and all round fat-studies academic hero of awesomesauce!
In short, it’s gonna be ACE!Â You should go here for more info about the conference and registration.Â DO IT.
