From the Olympics to Personal Fitness: A Conversation on Decolonizing Sports with Dr. Katrina Karkazis and Roc

The Department of Women’s & Gender Studies at the University of South Florida invites you to attend “From the Olympics to Personal Fitness: A Conversation on Decolonizing Sports,” a discussion on topics in sport that are not always critically engaged (e.g. the erasure of trans athletes from sport institutions and the unequal scrutiny professional athletes of color face). Insofar as the humanities speak to universal human concerns, this conversation seeks to embrace inclusion as we decenter traditional representations in sport. This the dialgoue between Dr. Katrina Karkazis, Amherst College and Yale Univesity, and Monica ‘Roc’ Rochon, founder of Rooted Resistance, will be followed by an opportunity for audience questions.

This program is funded in part with a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia in partnership with the University of South Florida.
