>Workshop - Women and Sport in Europe – April 4 2009 (provisional date)
>The aim of this one day workshop is to identify common research ground
>between researchers working in the field of women’s sport in Europe with a
>view to examining possible areas for future collaboration. Diverse in
>respect of its subject matter the study of women’s sport also accommodates a
>range of research methodologies. Although all approaches are welcome, we
>would particularly welcome contributions delineating sport’s links with the
>broader political, cultural and economic context in which it is practiced or
>consumed. Comparative studies of the evolution of a sport or sport in two or
>more European countries would also be of great interest although not
>essential. Scholars across the disciplines are invited to send a proposal
>for a conventional 20 minute paper or, alternatively, a brief description of
>their current research and an outline of areas to take forward for
>discussion at the workshop. Some suggested subject areas can be found below:
>• Feminism and women’ sport
>• Women’s sport in wartime
>• Sexualities and sport
>• Women’s sport and the mass media
>• Literary representations of the sporting woman.
>• Sport and schooling.
>• University sport clubs
>• Party political youth movements and sport
>• Dissident youth culture
>• State intervention in women’s sport
>• Sport and the Church.
>• Sport and public space
>• Sport and dress reform.
>• Professionalisation of women’s sport
>The list is by no means exhaustive!
>Please send expressions of interest/abstracts by September 1st 2008 to:
