Summary

Uses personal narratives to highlight the development of feminist sport studies.

This book highlights the development of feminist sport studies through personal narratives of prominent feminist sport researchers from North America, Europe, and New Zealand. With expertise in sport history, literature, psychology, and sociology, contributors offer reflections that cross disciplinary boundaries and provide a concise and current summary of this broad field.

In relaying their personal research experiences, contributors intertwine their professional and personal selves in stories that highlight the struggles of sport feminists, struggles that shaped the self and constructed feminist knowledge of sport. They tell about the academic context for feminist research in sport studies, the feelings and experiences of being women researchers in a male-dominated field, and internal doubts and disappointments after vilification of their work. The narrative style makes this book accessible to a wide variety of audiences and a suitable reference and/or text for sport science history and research methods courses.

"This book records the struggles and successes of a group of academics who have had a profound influence; it is important that these stories are told." — Sheila Scraton, coeditor of Gender and Sport: A Reader

Contributors include Susan J. Bandy, Celia Brackenridge, Joan L. Duda, Kari Fasting, M. Ann Hall, Ulla Kosonen, Sabine Kroner, Pirkko Markula, Carole A. Oglesby, Gertrud Pfister, Nancy Theberge, and Shona M. Thompson.

Pirkko Markula is Senior Lecturer at the University of Bath and the coeditor (with Jim Denison) of Moving Writing: Crafting Movement in Sport Research.
