Call for Papers | The Transnational Working Group for the Study of Gender and Sport | Reykjavik University, Iceland, August 15–17 2018. Call ends June 10, 2018

The Transnational Working Group for the Study of Gender and Sport invites scholars from the field of gender research in sport to the 11th annual meeting in Reykjavík Iceland. Founded in 2005, the group aims for a transnational and interdisciplinary exchange of researchers who have a major interest in the study of sport and gender. This year the meeting will take place in Reykjavík University, Iceland, 15–17 August, 2018.

Looking back on a long tradition of theoretical and empirical studies of gender-equity and gender construction in sport and research concerning sexism and gender discrimination, we invite researchers from different countries and scientific communities to discuss past, present and future perspectives, challenges and opportunities in the field of gender research in sport and sport studies. We specifically want to encourage young researchers/scholars to attend the meeting.

The program of the 11th annual meeting focuses on sexism, discrimination, sexual harassment and violence studies in the field of Physical Education and sport, LGBTQ+, as well as leadership and coaches’ perspectives.
