GSS 265 - Gender, Sexuality, & Sport


2 credit(s)
This course examines the intersection of culturally-based gender ideologies within the systems of sport and physical activity across various competitive levels. Sport continues to be an expression of dominant masculinity and shapes the (hetero)gender binary system. This course will examine and investigate the intersections between gender, race, and sexuality using a variety of theoretical frameworks (e.g., feminism, critical race theory, queer theory) while considering the history of sport and Title IX, relative to women’s emergence into athletics, and the commonalities and differences of men’s and women’s experiences in sport. Counts toward Diverse Perspectives core requirement.
Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirements: Diverse Perspectives and Social Systems and Human Behavior.
