Women in Sport and Physical Activity Journal (WSPAJ) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to advancing the understanding of women in sport and physical activity. Editor’s pick from the current issue: “IT’S JUST A LOT DIFFERENT BEING MALE THAN FEMALE IN THE SPORT”: AN EXPLORATION OF THE GENDERED CULTURE AROUND BODY PRESSURES IN COMPETITIVE FIGURE SKATING by Dana K. Voelker, Justine J. Reel.
Kajsa Gilenstam is both really excited by and somewhat disappointed with Jacky Forsyth & Claire-Marie Roberts’ edited work The Exercising Female: Science and Its Application (Routledge). While the chapters together give us a better insight into the topic and really make for an important book for those interested in sport and exercise for women, she writes, there are also instances of gender biased assumptions.
The Sociology of Sport Journal (SSJ) publishes original research, framed by social theory, on exercise, sport, physical culture, and the (physically active) body. The purpose of SSJ is to stimulate and communicate research, critical thought, and theory development on issues pertaining to the sociology of sport. The journal publishes peer-reviewed empirical, theoretical, and position papers; book reviews; and critical essays.
Originally published in 2014 and edited by Jennifer Hargreaves and Eric Anderson, the Routledge Handbook of Sport, Gender and Sexuality comprises 53 chapters penned by 68 internationally renowned sport scholars. According to our reviewer Benjamin Moreland, this perennial handbook is a vital contribution to the academic conversations surrounding gender and sexuality and a foundational read for scholars and students alike.
