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.

The last decade has seen an upsurge in female participation in sport, with girls and women becoming more visible as participants at grassroots level and celebrated for their competitive achievements at elite level.

Update | “Getting back on their feet … The Virtual Conference” | Women in Sport and Exercise Academic Network, September 7–8, 2020
Women tend to be overlooked when it comes to research within sport and exercise. We, therefore, wish to virtually connect individuals from a range of disciplines to ensure that sport and exercise research has a focus on women, especially during COVID-19 and beyond. This conference will be a platform of networking opportunities to connect with others in sport and exercise to boost confidence, training and motivation through knowledge gained via others’ research and experience.
