Event Description:
Sporting Matters: Race, Gender and Sexualities in the 21st Century is a three-part speaker series that convenes sportswriters, academic, authors, athletes, coaches and fans to explore the important issues at stake in our diverse experiences of sports. This series offers a sustained conversation about how race, gender, and sexualities inhabit the world of sports.

Speaker: Jennifer Doyle is Professor of English at the University of California, Riverside. Professor Doyle's current project (The Athletic Turn) explores the recent and extensive turn toward sports in contemporary art and performance. Surveying provocative instances of the artist's turn to athletic performance allows us to track the evolving relationship between contemporary art, popular culture and mass media, to follow how artists move across these domains, and bring elements of broadcast culture and also more intimate experience of play into the space of contemporary art.

Topic: "Marta's Pink Star: What We Talk about When We Talk about Women's Soccer"
A talk focusing on the politics of pleasure in women's soccer: for fans, for players, for the people who administer and market the sport.
