Sports Media as the Lab for Teaching Gender Issues

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session discusses strategies for using sports to examine the social construction of gender identity, and how media can inadvertently reinforce existing stereotypes and gender dynamics and at other times challenge existing preconceptions. The session will offer practical advice – lesson plans, class discussion topics and evaluation rubrics – as well as discuss broader concepts such as the intersection of gender, race and sexuality and their impact on sports coverage.
Moderator: Brad Gorham, Syracuse University
