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.
Originally published in 2014 and edited by Jennifer Hargreaves and Eric Anderson, the Routledge Handbook of Sport, Gender and Sexuality comprises 53 chapters penned by 68 internationally renowned sport scholars. According to our reviewer Benjamin Moreland, this perennial handbook is a vital contribution to the academic conversations surrounding gender and sexuality and a foundational read for scholars and students alike.

Sveriges ledande actionsportkulturforskare Åsa Bäckström, som ogillar ”action” men gillar ”kultur”, är vår recensent.
