Sport, Gender and Media Conference



With the Olympics in the UK, and a likely glut of related journalism, 2012 is an opportune time to investigate the framing of media relationships between sport and gender. This is a growing academic field which addresses important questions about equality, public health, representation, participation, citizenship and ‘fair play.’
