Lisec published in Journal of Sports Media
John Lisec, School Kinesiology Ph.D. student, was recently published in the Journal of Sports Media. His article, "Gender Inequality in the New Millennium: An Analysis of WNBA Representations in Sport Blogs," was co-authored by Mary G. McDonald of Miami University-Ohio.
Lisec and McDonald examined two sport news blogs, Deadspin and Women Talk Sports, to see if traditional media themes related to gender and sport were represented. Their findings suggested that dominant ideologies and representational patterns most frequently produced in traditional media accounts are often reproduced in Deadspin, while Women Talk Sports offered a unique opportunity for more critical engagement with these ideologies.
