Call for Papers | Feminisms and Sports Studies | Kings College London, February 2022. Call ends September 30, 2021

Within sports and physical activities, bodies are exposed, ranked, and naturalised, in the name of a collective understanding of sporting performance, all the while relying on and reproducing sexist, racist, heteronormative, ableist and classist bias. The primary focus will be to understand how expanding our research focuses and literature, allows for innovative research avenues.
