I’m fortunate to have published twice with UTP, as co-editor of Obesity in Canada: Critical Perspectives and author of Being Fat: Women, Weight and Feminist Activism. UTP was the first in Canada to publish works in critical fat studies, demonstrating their commitment to amplifying new scholarly ideas and authors. The Presses’ formidable marketing and distribution teams ensure that the books are widely available through booksellers and in libraries in Canada and internationally.
