First Announcement | Transnational Working Group for the Study of Gender and Sport | University of Vienna, Austria, 23–25 November, 2017

The Transnational Working Group for the Study of Gender and Sport invites scholars from the field of gender research in sport to the annual meeting in Vienna, Austria. 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 at the Centre for Sport Sciences and University Sport of the University in Vienna.

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.
