6th Meeting of the Transnational Working Group for the Study of Gender and Sport
The 6th Meeting of the Transnational Working Group for the Study of Gender and Sport will be held at the University of Bath (UK) on the 26-27 November 2010. The purpose of the group is to further the study of the cultural/social, political, and educational significance of the participation of females in sport, physical culture, and physical activities as well as to the study of gender as it relates to these activities from transnational and interdisciplinary perspectives.
The group is devoted to the mentoring of young scholars in sports, and welcomes scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds. Previous meetings included presentations dealing with themes of gender and education, sport, and physical culture, and this general theme will shape this year’s meeting as well.
Specific registration details and a call for papers are forthcoming. Immediate questions regarding the conference can be directed to Dr. Megan Chawansky.
