CFP: Gender, Sport, and the Olympics

Please circulate widely...

CFP: Gender, Sport, and the Olympics (deadline: May 15, 2009)

The editors of  /thirdspace: a journal of feminist theory and culture/
invite submissions for our forthcoming issue on gender, sport, and the
Olympics.

Prompted by the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, we are
interested in exploring the central role which gender and sexuality play in
shaping ideas about athleticism, sport culture, and the body, and the
significant ways in which athletic events such as the Olympics work to
transform conceptions of public space, national boundaries and identities,
and gendered self-presentations and performances. This issue invites
contributions on:

o        the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver
o        sport, athleticism, and ability
o        the Para Olympics
o        LGBT participation in athletics and the Olympics
o        legal impacts on gender and sport (i.e. Title IX legislation in the
United States)
o        sport and masculinities/femininities
o        the role of gender in sporting competition
o        gendered perspectives on Olympic events
o        the use of prosthetics and technologies in athletic competition
o        the impact of the Olympics on the environment
o        sports/the Olympics and the use of public space, including
displacement of individuals/communities, the environment, and urban renewal
o        and other topics relevant to the theme of gender, sport, and the

30. Electronic submissions are strongly preferred and should be sent
