SOCY 3358 Gender and Sports (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course uses sport to understand gender relations in a society. The course examines the ways that gender and intersections of race, class, sexuality are produced by and within relations of power, and how normative definitions of gender and its intersections underpin normative practices in sport, health, and physical cultural contexts. Drawing on feminist scholarship, this course provides a critical insight into the history of gender relations, and how gender is used to reproduce and resist inequalities in sport, health, and physical culture.
