This panel seeks to examine specifically how the representation of sporting bodies throughout the ages has contributed to the development and gendered understanding of particular sports cultures. The panel organisers therefore invite proposals exploring the representation of gender, its construction and/or contestation in a range of representational practices, including but not limited to: art, cinema, journalism, literature marketing, photography, print media, and social media.

Call for Papers | The role of sport in social life: Women, sport, and social change, International Conference | Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences and University of Zagreb...
The 2012 London Olympics can be symbolically considered the beginning of a new era, as women were represented for the first time in all sports, as well as in all delegations of the participating countries. Nevertheless, there are still numerous inequalities in the economic position and media treatment of women in modern sports as compared to men. We invite scientists to submit summaries of presentations on a wide range of topics and issues in the relationship between gender and sport

Call for Papers | “Emerging issues and alternative futures for gender and sport”, 14th Annual Meeting of the Transnational Scholars for the Study of Gender and Sport | Nord...
We invite scholars, policymakers and practitioners to discuss emerging transformations, issues and potentials that concern gender and related topics in sport. While some problems persist, there are also new and undetected phenomena that configure gendered issues in sport in novel and unexpected ways. We encourage conference participants to propose how we may approach emerging problematics in research, policymaking and practice in the field of gender and sport.
Call for Papers | “Transformations, Challenges and Potentials in Nordic Sport”, a session at the NORA 2022 Conference | Oslo, June 20–22, 2022
The current challenges of Nordic sport organizations, including gendered discrimination, racialization, homophobia and ableism, call upon innovative research that engages with the epistemologies and ontologies of sport, sex and gender. To address such complex issues interdisciplinary discussions are especially needed. The session invites papers engaging with contemporary tensions, challenges and potentials in Nordic sport.
Call for Papers | “Sport for everybody?! – Limitations and barriers on the way to this ideal” | 13th Annual Meeting of the Transnational Scholars for the Study of...
This conference raises the question of how it will be possible to open up sport to everybody, regardless of the diversity of backgrounds, e.g. their gender, origin or social status, whether with or without disabilities, etc. Are there any examples we can learn from in an international context? What barriers for participation in sport and physical activity on an equal footing do still exist and how can they be broken down? How can underrepresented groups (e.g. women or persons with a LGBTIQ background) be specifically involved.
Call for Papers | Feminisms and Sports Studies | Kings College London, February 2022. Call ends September 30, 2021
This conference aims to critically investigate our own research field, i.e. Sports Studies. 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.
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.
