Teaching “Women, Sports and Culture”

I am teaching “Women, Sports and Culture,” a senior-level course for the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Maryland, this semester.  From the description:

“This course will offer an overview of contemporary cultural issues in women’s sports. Topics that will be covered are the controversial nature of sex verification, gender and female bodily comportment, Title IX, the Battle of the Sexes, media representations of female athletes, nationalism, the Olympics, dis/abilities, race and intersectionality, and lesbian and transgender issues. This course is a writing-intensive course with most of the major assignments being linked to parts of the larger final paper.”

Unfortunately for those not enrolled and wish to be, this course is already over-enrolled; however, given the enrollment numbers, it should be offered again soon.

Feel free to peruse the syllabus here.
