8TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL WEIGHT STIGMA CONFERENCE

22 to 23 June 2020

Founded in 2013, the Annual International Weight Stigma Conference is now in its eighth year, having been held in the UK, Canada, Iceland, and Czech Republic. This year, we come to New Zealand.

The Weight Stigma Conference is an inter-disciplinary event that brings together scholars and practitioners from a range of backgrounds (e.g., psychology, medicine, public health, allied health professions, education, sports and exercise science, social sciences, sociology, anthropology, fat studies, gender studies, media studies, business, public policy, law) to consider research, policy, rhetoric, and practice around the issue of weight stigma.

We are now accepting abstracts for oral presentations and posters, as well as session proposals including brief symposia, round tables, debates, and workshops. We are also interested in non-traditional submissions (e.g. media, performance, art). For more information about the conference and to submit an abstract, please visit: stigmaconference.com
