Fat Studies and Health at Every Size
Over the course of 2010-2012, an interdisciplinary Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) seminar series will take place in the UK, addressing critical questions about the politics surrounding fatness and health. This series will consist of four seminars involving academics, policy makers, practitioners, activists, students and interested individuals. The interdisciplinary team involved in organising this series are from disciplinary backgrounds including: geography, sociology, women's studies, dietetics, nursing and midwifery, education, and sports and exercise science and the series will be of interest to people from many other subject areas. These pages outline the main context for the seminars.
