Sex, Gender, and Sexuality in Sport : Queer Inquiries, Paperback / softback Book

Sex, Gender, and Sexuality in Sport : Queer Inquiries Paperback / softback

Edited by Vikki (Bowling Green State University, US) Krane

Description

Diverse sex, gender, and sexual identities historically have been pushed to the margins in sport.

While there is more visibility and inclusion for LGBTIQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer) people in sport today than in the past, there still exists bigotry and marginalization.

In this book, Vikki Krane and a team of leading sport scholars critically assess what we know about sex, gender, and sexuality in sport; expose areas in need of further inquiry; and offer new avenues for theory, research, and practice.

Drawing on cultural studies perspectives, and with social justice at the heart of every chapter, the book discusses theory, policy, practice, and the experiences of LGBTIQ people in sport. Sex, Gender, and Sexuality in Sport is an important read for undergraduate and postgraduate students in any class with content on LGBTIQ people in sport, but particularly for those studying sport and gender, sexuality and sport, LGBT studies, psychology of gender, contemporary issues in sport, sociology of gender, and sport and higher education.

It is also a vital resource for scholars who conduct research in the area of LGBTIQ people in sport.
