Professor Charlotte Macdonald has been confirmed as our speaker for the Sue Innes Memorial Lecture on the Friday evening:

Panel sessions will be held throughout the day on Saturday 27th September and paper proposals are now welcomed on all themes related to the history of Gender, Fitness and Sport or which link to any of the following areas:

  • Masculinity and femininity within sport and physical activity
  • Sport history
  • Gender and physical activity
  • Physical recreation
  • Sport and the body
  • Health and fitness

Paper proposals are certainly not restricted to those working on Scottish history and we encourage submissions from those working on any time period or geographical area if their research fits the overarching conference theme of Gender, Fitness and Sport.

We particularly encourage submissions from postgraduate students.
