It went off without a technological hitch and, more importantly, we created a space online where beautiful and difficult thoughts, ideas, and emotions were shared. We had participants joining us from Australia, the UK, Saudi Arabia, the USA, and Canada. We welcomed many new voices to Critical Dietetics and were delighted to have several returning from years past. Thank you to everyone who made this happen including the participants and presenters. The possibilities are swirling for next year…

I am very pleased that with the help of our Layout Editor, Kerry Beake, we have published the sixth issue of our Journal and the second of 2016. This issue is called “Cultural Embodiments” and contains two reflexive articles, six research articles, and … one poem!
To review the TOC you must be a “reader” of the Journal. Become a reader of our Journal here: http://criticaldietetics.ryerson.ca/index.php/criticaldietetics/user/register
The Journal of Critical Dietetics is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that is FREE to readers and authors. We feel pretty good about that, actually! Becoming a “reader” of the Journal enables us to communicate with you when we publish a new Journal issue or when we post a call for abstracts regarding our annual conference. Typically, we email readers of the Journal six-eight times each year and we never, ever share our email list with anyone.
If you are already registered as a “reader” of the Journal, please take a moment to review the Table of Contents to see which articles you would like to download for reading: http://criticaldietetics.ryerson.ca/index.php/criticaldietetics/issue/view/8/showToc
And, as a reminder, you are welcome to share PDFs of these articles widely, but please encourage anyone with whom you share the PDFs to become official readers of our Journal.
What a whirlwind experience and a most nourishing one as well. Last night we capped it off with an open mic in a park just by the Alhambra. The tourists were intrigued by the poetry, song, and dance! Most memorable!
For those who wish to hear the opening and closing keynotes and a sampling of other presentations from the conference including Lucy Aphramor’s “Naked Dietitian” spoken word, you can still do so by purchasing online access. Email me to get further details.
If you wish to help plan the next conference, also email me to join the conference planning committee. Work on 2017 will be very soon as we expect it to be our best conference ever!
Thanks for everyone for making this an incredible delight, especially our intrepid graphic artists, Val and Fiona. Pictures to follow!
