In association with Mixed Signals: Artists Consider Masculinity in Sports, on view through Sunday, October 23
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-athletesAllee 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.
