I’m happy to announce that the 2015 Weight Stigma Conference will be held in Reykjavic, Iceland, and will be hosted by Sigrún Daníelsdóttir in conjunction with the Icelandic Association for Body Respect. Sigrún is a psychologist specialising in body image, eating disorders and weight prejudice, and has led the fight for body respect and equality in her country for the past decade. She is author of the children’s book “Your body is brilliant – body respect for children”.
The date of the conference has not been set yet and we are considering two main options: either last week of June/first week of July OR first week of September. We realise that the organisation of the academic year is different in different countries and makes it difficult for some people to attend at some times. If you would like to attend and have a strong preference for one date or the other, or if you could do both dates, could you please let us know, either by email or by commenting on this post on the website.
