Sex and the Uneventful: Feminist Art and Women’s Sports

Dr. Jennifer Doyle, University of California, Riverside, Department of English

This talk will introduce a range of feminist artworks which engage women’s soccer. When viewed in relation to the history of active suppression of the women’s game, these works helps us to see how gender segregation impacts our understanding of motion, the spectacle and the event in sports as well as in relation to physical practice more broadly.
