On fatting it up across Texas (with a friend!) March 5, 2018

I know I just returned from seven months in Europe. I know I promised you lots of blogs about my travels, and what is was like for a super fat person, and all of the tools and resources I used to make my travel experiences as comfortable as possible. I promise those are still coming.

 

And I know that I’ve whinged a bit about all the travelling I did while I was there; fourteen countries made my itinerary. And nine of those were results of invitations from Universities and other organisations, inviting me to give a talk or a workshop on my scholarship and activism.

A guest lecture in Finland

A seminar at Oxford

It was such a success, and I had so much fun connecting with similar scholars and activists, that I’m going to do another one. Another speaking tour, that is. And this one will be closer to my home (my hometown, that is): I’m coming to Texas. And I’m bringing my friend, Substantia Jones.

That’s right, Cat Pausé and Substantia Jones are coming to the Lone Star State in December of 2018 to give talks, run workshops, take naked photos, and eat good TexMex. Seriously, I am so excited to feed Substantia all the TexMex she can handle.

At the moment, the plan is be in Houston, Austin, and Dallas; we are very happy to fit in additional stops along the way if the invitations are there and we can make it fit into the schedule. We appreciate that Dec isn’t the best month for Universities, but I’m afraid I don’t finish my own teaching in New Zealand until mid November, so the earliest we can be booked in would late Nov.

If you, or anyone you know, would like to schedule either of us – BOTH of us – to give a seminar, workshop, etc, at your University or organisation, please let me know. And check out our flyer; please share it far and wide!
