1. Guest-Jelley, Anna. "The Yoga of Fat: Bridging Fat Activism and Studies in the Unlikeliest of Places" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, SHERATON HOTEL (DOWNTOWN) ATLANTA, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2019-12-14 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p513626_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: In this paper I explore the intersections of fat activism and studies in the unlikeliest of places--the yoga blogosphere and studio. First, I will discuss the connections between the fatosphere and the yogosphere. Although overlap exists, separate spheres make talking about and teaching movement in a way that does not focus on weight loss an interesting and often troubling experience. Second, I will discuss a recent trend in the yoga blogosphere calling for “real yoga,” in contrast to the mainstream glamorous, thin, young, and white depictions of yoga and ideas about “real yoga” are played out across issues of fat, body image, eating disorders, and yoga. Finally, I will give examples of ways people can work for fat acceptance outside the academy.

2. Farrell, Amy. "As Long as Fat Women are Oppressed, No Woman Can Be Liberated!”: The Emergence of Fat Liberation in Early Second-Wave Feminism" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, SHERATON HOTEL (DOWNTOWN) ATLANTA, Atlanta, GA, <Not Available>. 2019-12-14 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p513732_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: In this paper I propose to address the emergence and flowering of fat feminism in the early years of the second wave of feminism. I argue that second wave feminists inherited from the first wave of feminism a fraught relationship to the body, in particular to body size and to fatness; at the same time the ideology of the “personal is political” provided a counterpoint that allowed a new perspective to take hold.
This paper, then, explores the early articulations of fat feminisms in second wave feminism. Through an exploration of these struggles I argue that one can see both the liberatory potential of a new fat politics and the vestiges of an older ideal of a thin body as “normal” and “civilized.”

3. Barron, Rory. "Passing While Fat? Transgender Bodies, Gender Dysphoria, and Anti-Fatness" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Hilton Baltimore, Baltimore, MD, <Not Available>. 2019-12-14 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1269520_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between gender dysphoria in transgender individuals and anti-fat attitudes and representations in mainstream American culture by analyzing the ways in which anti-fat attitudes influence expectations of acceptable gender performance and the ways transgender individuals of different gender identities who are deemed fat negotiate with these forces in order to “pass.” Specifically, this paper seeks to analyze ways that anti-fatness is regulated differently in both masculinity and femininity and how that affects transgender individuals who are in a pre-transitional state as well as examining the similarities between the bodily violence fat bodies and transgender bodies face.

Abstract: The "Fatosphere," a community of blogs ranging from personal stories to deconstructions of dominant cultural messages about size and weight, is a fun and informative way to learn about issues involving fat bias and fat acceptance. The emphasis on acceptance and respect from the Fatosphere can be empowering to clients and to counselors themselves.

Abstract: Black-face minstrelsy has had a significant impact on Black media representations, and elements of this genre often arise in various films. Tyler Perry’s Madea, Martin Lawrence’s Big, and Eddie Murphy’s Rasputia explore whether these characters participate in the genre by using generic participation. This paper reviews the important features of this genre, describes each character, examines participation, and adds new characteristics to the genre.
