Balls, Bruises and Blocks: Discussing the Performance of Masculinity in Sports

Guys, I’m posting to Wesleying from one of those Olin compooters, and it’s lame. Well, not really. Well, kinda really. I don’t know. Anyway, courtesy of Cool Cat ’77, check out the blurb for this discussion tomorrow if you missed it in your email:

How are gender, race and class performed in sporting events? How are such repeated public performances embedded into American male culture? The Center for the Arts will host a panel consisting of Professor of Psychology and Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies Jill Morawski, Assistant Professor of Sociology Greg Goldberg and Wesleyan student-athletes Allee Beatty ’13 (Softball), Luke Erickson ’12 (Wrestling), and Casey Reed ’12 (Volleyball). The panel will also question the possibilities for transgression and the alternative masculinities that might be performed.
