Gender, Race, & Sport: Intersections/Assemblages - 10th Anniversary

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session provides a space for queer/trans/feminist, post-colonial and critical race scholarship on sport and culture to be discussed in an integrative manner. Papers drawing on critical intersectional scholarship or assemblage theory that highlight the ways in which sport is mobilized to enforce/normalize/resist mutually constituting hierarchies of oppression and inequality are what we are looking for. Be very explicit in your proposal about going beyond an additive approach to gender, race, sexuality, etc.
