According to a news release from Pennsylvania State University, the College of Arts & Architecture has hired a so-called “non-binary” “activist and educator” who will “emphasize fatness” in the classroom.

According to Penn State, by “emphasizing fatness,” Hull aims to “make education accessible to every human body.”

Hull’s previous projects include creating a font for “people of size,” publishing a research project on “queer existence within design history,” and studying the “lived experiences of eight fat people to advance fat representation and liberation.”

Hull designed a font package called “Disrupting Type Canons” for use by “people of size.”

In addition to taking on this new role with Penn State, Hull will continue to serve as a visiting professor of “fat and queer activism” with the University of Copenhagen in Denmark on a part-time basis.

Hull’s hiring comes less than two months after the College of Arts & Architecture presented a “prestigious” award to one of its architectural students for “investigating the gender binary” of the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. After determining that the train station’s design was not sufficiently “queer,” the award-winning student proposed a remodel.
