LaVoi, Calhoun, and Johnson have article accepted to International Journal of Sport Communications
Nicole M. LaVoi, lecturer in Kinesiology and associate director for the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, Austin Stair Calhoun, Kinesiology Ph.D. student, and Alicia Johnson, former Tucker Center intern, recently had their article accepted to the International Journal of Sport Communication (IJSC).
The paper, "Framing with family: Examining online coaching biographies for heteronormative and heterosexist narratives," examined over 1,800 online coaching biographies of Division I & III NCAA head coaches for textual representations of heteronormativity and heterosexism. The data demonstrates a near absence of GLBT coaches, suggesting digital content of intercollegiate athletic department web sites reproduce dominant gender ideologies and are plagued by homophobia in overt and subtle ways.
The article is set to be published in Volume 4 (Issue 3) of the IJSC.
