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.
