Weight Stigma Conference 2020: Call for abstracts

8th Annual International Weight Stigma Conference, 22-23 June, 2020, Auckland, New Zealand

Call for abstracts:

The Annual International Weight Stigma Conference is an inter-disciplinary event that brings together scholars and practitioners from a range of backgrounds (e.g., public health, government and public policy, psychology, medicine, sociology, anthropology, allied health professions, education, sports and exercise science, social sciences, media studies, business, law, activism, and the lay public) 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). The two-day interdisciplinary programme 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.

For more information about the conference and to submit an abstract, please visit: stigmaconference.com.

Submission deadlines: Session proposals Monday 3rd February; Oral presentations Monday 17th February; Posters will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
