8th Meeting of Transnational Scholars for the Study of Gender and Sport
From 26. - 28. November 2015 the Transnational Working Group for the Study of Sport and Gender held its 8th meeting in Basel, Switzerland. Together with scholars from all over Europe, from the USA, Australia and from many other countries around the world the group discussed past, present and future perspectives, challenges and opportunities in the field of gender research in sport and sport studies. Point of departure for the inspiring and insightful conference were the following topics:
Theoretical approaches to gender in the field of sport studies.
How has the term gender been used? How did it evolve and/or change over time in different (inter-/trans-) national research contexts?
Methodological approaches to intersectionality in the research of gender and sport.
How can we explore gender issues in sport with a more complex understanding of gender inequality? What inquiry focuses could be interesting in regard to intersectionality?
Gender policies in sport.
How have research results from the field of sport and gender been translated into sport politics and politics of gender equity / equality? What goals have been reached and which of these goals will be and should be in the focus of future research?
New topics and perspectives.
The Transnational Working Group for the Study of Sport and Gender always invites scholars to give an insight into their current studies and projects. What questions are of special interest in their research on sport and gender and in the research contexts they work in?
The meeting has taken place at the "Institut für Bildungswissenschaften". This is a cooperative institute of the University of Basel and the School for Teacher Education of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland.
