Day 1 – Critical Dietetics in Granada

We have completed the first day of our sixth international conference. A full day with wonderful connections made with new people. Thank you to everyone who participated in person and with the online conference. Today we will update the attendees on the Journal and we will make some decisions about next years conference, so stay tuned for that!

Again, people have remarked about how important it is to hear the stories that resonate with their own. We have Val and Fiona providing creative graphic recording about everyone who is here. I will share a picture of it soon.

The conversations are invigorating, provocative, and nourishing.

More coming soon!

Two Resources to Share


In between conference planning and preparing for the next issue of the Journal of Critical Dietetics, we are pleased to share two items with our subscribers. The first is a resource for dietetic interns as they prepare for clinical rotations during their internships. Charna Gord was kind enough to share this resource with the Critical Dietetics Community. Professional Passage Announcement

The second is a call for chapters for an edited volume on Fat Mothering. The call was shared with me by one of the co-editors, Sam Abel. Please contact her if you have any questions. Fat Mothering CFP

Thank you for thinking of Critical Dietetics as a space to share interesting resources. See you in Spain!

Call for Abstracts…Extended!

Isn’t it just the way – the deadline for abstracts has snuck up on some of us! Although we have received some amazing, critical, and creative abstracts, we know there are more out there. Send them in by April 29, so we can design an extraordinary conference program.

Please share this extension with all your friends who are attending the International Congress of Dietetics in Granada immediately following the Critical Dietetics Conference. Of course, they will want to attend both!

Critical Dietetics is Coming Up Sixes…

GranadaIt is astonishing to me that we are preparing for our SIXTH annual conference to happen September 5 and 6, 2016 in Granada, Spain! It seemed like yesterday when we gathered for the very first time in Toronto and co-created Critical Dietetics as a vital and affirming movement within the profession. That was June 2010!

Yesterday, we published our SIXTH journal issue entitled, Constituting Subjectivities with an emphasis on becoming what we know as “dietitian”. The collaborative effort continues to build in provocative and compelling ways. Take a moment to visit our Journal, register as a reader if you haven’t already, and read the latest issue. Screen Shot 2016-02-07 at 11.41.35 AM

The call for abstracts for the conference is going to be shared in the coming weeks. Please consider submitting an abstract and joining us in Spain. Along with our usual paper sessions, we are planning for some performative aspects and non-traditional means for people to join the conversation i.e. web-based sessions.

Onward, co-conspirators!
