Feminist Scholarship: Cross-Disciplinary Connections for Cultivating a Critical Perspective in Kinesiology
Reifsteck, Erin J.
Quest, v66 n1 p1-13 2014
Kinesiology has not been a particularly inviting space for feminist critical analysis. In this article, as a graduate student in the field, I argue that feminist scholarship from women and gender studies can be applied to kinesiology issues to promote a critical perspective that is often missing in kinesiology. I draw connections between feminist scholarship and issues related to gender, race, sexuality, and their intersections within sport and physical activity space, which is a central focus of kinesiology research and practice. These interdisciplinary connections can move kinesiology toward developing a critical approach to sport studies and kinesiology-related scholarship.
