WGST 692-75 / WGST 593-75 Feminist, Queer and Trans Approaches to Sport
Sport: a final frontier in studies of gender and sexuality. How do athletics both challenge and uphold the gender binary? How are ideas about gender and sport racialized? Can (and should) sport & politics be disentangled? We will explore these topics and others including: "sex testing", heterosexism, LGBTQ+ rights, bodies, hormones, protest, competition, fairness, separatism, nationalism, and more.
