Sport has always been a significant aspect of human life. From the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece to the birth of football in the second half of the 19th century England and to contemporary sporting activities around the world, sport has always been a vital element of human activities. Sport is essential to health and happiness of people of all ages, genders, races, etc. and it needs to be studied through an interdisciplinary and international approach.

Extended deadline (February 19): Edited volume: “Trans Identities in the French media” - Call for abstracts

Monday, February 1, 2021 - 12:22pm
Dr Romain Chareyron
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 19, 2021

As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.
