A rewarding reading for sport scholars about critical research on sex, gender and sexuality in surfing
Sex, gender and sexuality have played an important role in shaping the culture of surfing and are central themes in lisahunter’s edited volume on surfing’s symbolism, postcolonialism, patriocolonial whiteness and heteronormativity. Surfing, Sex, Genders and Sexualities (Routledge) is highly appreciated by our reviewer Anna Adlwarth for its critical approach that uncovers disturbing aspects of the surfing culture as well as that of other lifestyle sports.
Linghede challenges conventional sport studies, that’s why it’s essential reading for all sport scholars

More knowledge is needed, and now provided in the form of Vikki Kranes edited volume Sex, Gender, and Sexuality in Sport: Queer Inquiries (Routledge). It is reviewed here by our critique débutant Anna Adlwarth, and she finds much in this anthology to amend the paucity of theory and research in this field.
