Call for Participants | Dunja Antunovic: “Time to Award Medals? Agenda Diversity in Media Coverage of the Olympics” | Iowa Colloquium on Sport and Culture. Webinar on Zoom, October 6,...
In this talk, I examine the implications of social media platforms in relation to agenda diversity during the Olympic Games. I overview recent datapoints on representations of sport, gender, and national identity from multiple contexts (e.g., United States, Australia, Slovenia, Croatia, and Hungary) to illustrate that nationalism continues to be a driving force in coverage, albeit with local particularities. I problematize notions of “gender equality” in media representations that obscure gendered nationalism and perpetuate “us versus them” divisions.
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.
