Inclusion, Exclusion and Strategies for Change
14th and 15th July 2016
These 2 seminars are on consecutive days:
Seminar 4. Focus on gender – Thursday 14th July 2016.
In this seminar we will consider the experiences of these “less visible” participants and consumer groups, including girls and women, and older participants. We will examine: the political potential of this so-called ‘female athletic revolution’ (Comer, 2010), and how to promote greater equity and strategies for change amongst young and older women; the forms of exclusion and barriers to inclusion (in relation to sexuality/gender/ race/age/disability) that operate in these informal sporting spaces; the role of the media and action sport industries in promoting greater equity and/or reproducing sexist and neo-colonial discourses; the ability of lifestyle sport based NGOs to tackle gender issues and empower vulnerable and marginalised groups.

Seminar 5. Bodies out of place? The racialisation of informal sporting spaces – Friday 15th July 2016.
In this seminar we will consider the complex factors contributing to make minority ethnic groups feel ‘out of place’ in white-dominated countryside spaces and how to develop more inclusive policy practices. We aim to understand identity, belonging and exclusion in LS contexts, and the capacity for LS to reinforce or challenge this racial status quo.
