Masculinities, Gender Relations, and Sport

Masculinities, Gender Relations, and Sport

Description

Exploring the more sophisticated and nuanced perspectives that have emerged on the study of gender, men and sport, this book considers three central questions: how can the study of maculinities in sport be integrated with critical feminist studies; how can researchers deal with the tendency in critical sport sociology to overemphasize negative outcomes; and how the study of masculinity and gender can best be consolidated with analyses of race and ethnicity, social class and sexual orientation. The book concludes with a discussion of the ways in which the dominant forms of gender relations in sport are being contested and transformed.
