Sport, Gender and Sexuality (Hardcover)
about this item
Sport, gender, and sexuality emerged as a field of serious academic interest in the 1970s and 1980s, and has now developed into a subject widely studied across the world. Now, this new four-volume collection from Routledge explores how sport was shaped historically as a gendered institution, and closely examines the gender and sexuality of mediated sport, specifically sport’s role in the creation and contestation of embodied gender and sexual categories.
