Description - Race, Gender and Sport by Aarti Ratna

The experiences of ethnic 'Other' females have - until recently - been widely overlooked in the study of sport. There continues to be a need to produce critical scholarship about ethnic 'Other' girls and women in sport and physical culture, in order to represent their complex, multifarious and dynamic lived realities. This international collection of critical essays provides compelling insight into the lived realities of ethnic 'Other' females in sport.

Throughout the book, contributors either draw on the political consciousnesses of 'Other' feminisms, or privilege the voices of ethnic 'Other' girls and women so as to broaden, diversify and advance critical thinking pertaining to ethnic 'Other' females in sport and physical culture. The purpose of the collection is both to produce knowledge and privilege otherwise subjugated knowledges, which individually and collectively present counter-narratives that better speak to the lived realities of racially oppressed groups of women and girls.

Race, Gender and Sport: The Politics of Ethnic 'Other' Girls and Women is important reading for all students and scholars with an interest in the sociology of sport, gender studies, or race and ethnicity studies.

Author Biography - Aarti Ratna

Aarti Ratna is a senior lecturer in the sociology of sport and leisure at Leeds Beckett University, UK. Dr Ratna's scholarship is shaped by the contributions of Black feminist intellectuals, and she uses this theoretical lens to inform her research about race, gender, sport, leisure, and popular culture. Many of her publications have specifically focused upon the multifaceted subjectivities of British Asian female footballers. Her more recent projects aim to examine gender, belonging, diaspora communities and the changing leisure lifestyles of older South Asian men and women Samaya F. Samie is a critical educator whose interdisciplinary research interests include the fields of sociology, race and ethnic studies, south Asian studies, women and gender studies, post-colonial feminist epistemologies, sport and popular culture. Her published work focuses not only on the complex identity work of young British Pakistani Muslim men and their constructions of religious masculinities through sport and physical education, but also explores the intersections of gender, 'race', culture and religion in the lives of sporting (south Asian) Muslim women living in diaspora communities in the 'West'
