WSC 2019: Abstract submission open

“Moving the Dial” in Weight Stigma Research and Resistance

We are now accepting abstracts for the 7th Annual International Weight Stigma Conference, being held on 27–28 June, 2019, in London, Ontario.

This year’s theme focuses on new research and theoretical contributions that move the dial on weight stigma and how to resist it. The two-day interdisciplinary program will cover the entire weight stigma research spectrum—from basic, to applied, to clinical, to policy—and feature an outstanding roster of international speakers and local experts. We encourage abstracts that offer novel and fresh insights and/or address existing gaps and open questions on how to bridge research and practice in this field, and challenge and resist weight stigma.

We are 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

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, media studies, business, public policy, law) to consider research, policy, rhetoric, and practice around the issue of weight stigma.

Submission deadlines: Session proposals 8th March; Oral presentations 29th March; Posters will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
