Fat Feminisms panel discussion

A new call for participation says, “Fat Feminisms: Body Image, Gender Politics and F(l)abulous Visions of the Future: A Proposed Panel at the National Women’s Studies Association 2008 Meeting.” You can find the info regarding the conference here and they say they are looking for submissions on subjects such as “Personal narratives about the intersection of gender and size, The intersection of gender/size with race, class and dis/ability, and Fat sexualities, gender identities and gender expression and sex-positive feminism,” among a host of other topics which are sometimes looked at by dress and appearance scholars. Sounds like it could be an interesting panel discussion and the call for papers has a ton of lead-time since they don’t seem to be due until June 2008.
