“Hey everyone! For all those who asked, here's how to get a copy of the Fat Haircuts book! It's pretty expensive, even selling direct from the printer, but they're having a sale until the end of July for 55% off! That should make it about $70, and shipping is free if you spend at least $65! If you miss the sale, they usually give a coupon code to people who like their facebook page or follow their twitter account.

If you can't afford it, tell your library* to buy it instead!

Coupon Code: JULY55IWP”

Special issue of Fat Studies : An Interdisciplinary Journal of Body Weight and Society re: Visual Representations of Fat and Fatness

Fat Studies

Derp! I forgot to say that the special issue of Fat Studies : An Interdisciplinary Journal of Body Weight and Society on Visual Representations of Fat and Fatness came out in May. And you can see 4 of the 11 parts for free. I was one of the reviewers for a piece that didn't make it -- it did need editing, but was a good idea and well done, so hopefully the writer will publish it somewhere soon. (I really wish I could tell you about it, but the writers don't know who their reviewers are, and vice versa.) And I was included in the Thanks to Reviewers.
