Fat Studies is becoming an interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary field of
study that confronts and critiques cultural constraints against notions
of “fatness” and “the fat body”; explores fat bodies as they live in, are
shaped by, and remake the world; and creates paradigms for the development
of fat acceptance or celebration within mass culture.

RIVERS at CEA

All the rivers run to the sea, and this year SEA at CEA focuses on the
literature of riversâ€"passages that feature the river itself, river craft,
and the craft of moving on moving waterâ€"by raft, steamboat, keelboat; by
pole, paddle, or portage; by slave, slaver, sailor, or salmon. Papers on
the rich literary histories of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers are
especially appropriate to our meeting at their confluence in St. Louis.

Conference Theme
P A S S A G E S

The clean, elegant lines of the St. Louis Gateway Arch rise high above
the Mississippi River, a literal representation of the city’s most famous
epithet, “Gateway to the West.” Inspired by this image, CEA pays tribute
to St. Louis and to the many pioneers who passed through its threshold,
risking the world they knew for nothing more (or less) than the promise
of a new beginning. Our theme for the 2008 conference is Passages.
