The inaugural, hopefully annual, Australian Fat Studies Conference kicks off in Sydney on Friday. THIS FRIDAY! I’m less than 48 hours away from learning from/working with/bear hugging some of the coolest fatties I’ve met through the fatosphere.
I’m planning on posting a recap of the conference, but if you want a running commentary of the two days Twitter is your best bet. Here’s a list of the fatties you should be following:
Fat Studies online hub
Fat Dialogue @FatDialogue
While you’re at it, check out FatDialogue.com. The site was specifically established to reach those who could not attend the conference and to enable the continuation of conversations begun at the Fat Studies conference. FatDialogue.com will be officially launched at the conference but is currently live, so clickety click your way over there.
O captain, my captain (aka the amazing woman who organised the whole thing)

The hashtag to look out for is #sydfatconf.
