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.
To promote gender equality in sport, is sex integrated sports the way to go? Food for thoughts on this topic is provided in Sex Integration in Sport and Physical Culture: Promises and Pitfalls, edited by Channon, Dashper, Fletcher & Lake (Routledge). Our reviewer is Mark Brooke, whose thinking on the matter was greatly stimulated by the various contributions in this volume.
