Call for Participants | Shelley Lucas & Laura Frances Chase: “Women’s Mountain Biking History and Culture” | Iowa Colloquium on Sport and Culture. Webinar on Zoom, April 7, 2023
In this presentation, we will share elements of our work-in-progress about the history and culture of women’s mountain biking. One of the goals of this book project is to make visible the historical experiences of women in mountain biking, but to go beyond simply adding women’s experiences to the broader history of mountain biking. Rather, we seek to examine the ways in which women’s participation alters the stories/narratives that are told about mountain biking history and fundamentally changes the space of mountain biking.
The purpose of Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy is to provide a forum for high quality educational research for a national and international readership. We intend this research to have a high impact on both policy and practice. We accept review papers on a broad range of physical activities.
An important scholarly contribution to a contemporary, socio-cultural practice that’s otherwise left to the natural sciences
Endurance, or long-distance, running means at least 5k, and usually much longer. Øyvind F. Standal has read a new edited volume about this phenomenon, Endurance Running: A socio-cultural examination by William Bridel, Pirkko Markula & Jim Denison (Routledge) that sheds light on this physically and mentally demanding sport.
