Call for Papers | “Racialisation, colonisation and gender in Nordic sports” | Kjønnsforskning NÅ! [Gender Research NOW], Online Conference, May 27–28, 2021. Call ends March 15, 2021
In the field of sport studies in the Nordic region, important contributions have pointed to the persistence of gender as a key organising principle and symbolic practice, at both the elite and grassroots levels. The main focus of academic work on sport and in/exclusion has tended to focus on gender and/or ethnicity as the primary markers of difference and sameness. In this, questions of racism and coloniality have largely been overlooked, and left underexplored.
