Book launch: Sport, Gender and Development

Join the authors of Sport, Gender and Development for a panel discussion and Q&A session on sport feminisms and new approaches to research on sport for development and peace.

Date

Thu, 05/26/2022

When: 26 May, 2.30pm EST

In a context where striving for gender equity in relation to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals seems more pressing than ever before, Sport, Gender and Development: Intersections, Innovations and Future Trajectories brings together an exploration of sport feminisms to offer new approaches to research on Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) in global and local contexts.

Including postcolonial and decolonial feminist lenses by drawing upon fieldwork with organizations and individuals in Afghanistan, Uganda, Nicaragua, and India, Sport, Gender and Development reveals the complexities of development and gender discourses and how they operate on and through researchers, practitioners, and participants' bodies. Delving into a thoughtful engagement with the (dis)connections and comparisons across these diverging contexts, this book offers a critically reflexive account of what is transpiring in the transnational sport, gender and development field, while remaining sensitive to the importance of community context and local iterations. 

The session will open with an introduction by Payoshni Mitra from the Global Observatory for Women, Sport, Physical Education and Physical Activity.
