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.
Call for Abstracts | Cultures of Mountain Biking in Contemporary Societies | Edited Book Collection, Routledge
When positioned alongside the ever-expanding disciplines of lifestyle sport and cycling studies writ large, mountain biking remains conspicuous by its absence. The intention of this collection, which will be the first of its kind, is to showcase and promote the excellent work being done by existing scholars in this field, whilst advancing and stretching our conceptual and empirical understanding of contemporary mountain bike culture(s).
