The glorious day is at hand. We now have our place in the academy - Fat Studies.
Fat studies is an important and emerging interdisciplinary area of study incorporating scholarship from the humanities and social sciences. Contributors to the discipline confront and critique cultural constraints against notions of fatness and the fat body. As with women’s studies, queer studies and disability studies, there is a political imperative to the work within fat studies, with an aim to create social change around issues of weight oppression, through promoting size acceptance and body diversity.
Freedom fellow fatties! I can see the promised land - with oodles of milk and honey.
