Sport, Gender and Media Conference
- Posted by Thomas Howie
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.’

The conference will be interdisciplinary, and welcomes contributions from many fields in order to foster understanding of, and promote relationships between a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. We also intend to celebrate the achievements of women in sport, and this conference will be part of the marking International Women’s Day.
The aims of this event are to:
• Demonstrate and enrich the depth of study in this field.
• Bring together academics, activists and others working on sport, gender and media.
