Obesity in Canada receives citation from WGSRF

Obesity in Canada received an honourable mention for the 2018 “Outstanding Scholarship Prize” from Women’s and Gender Studies/Recherches Féministes (WGSRF). In their citation, they said: “Obesity in Canada: Critical Perspectives is a laudable example not only of cutting-edge scholarly research but also of how to construct an edited collection around a complex theme…Its attention to authorship, identity, interdisciplinarity and to the ways in which obesity discourses are made complicit in disempowering individuals and communities, all contribute to providing a critical and important contribution to women’s and gender studies scholarship, and to the thinking which ought to undergird policy development and critique in Canada.” Contact me if you would like to learn more or connect to the contributors of this collection.
