This and That

A couple of items you may or may not find useful ...

1. Andy Billings at Clemson has a student who is doing a study on fantasy sports. The study has an online survey, which can be accessed here. Andy encourages all faculty and students to help out, if possible. The survey should take only around 5 minutes.

2. Thirdspace: A Journal of Feminist Theory and Culture is inviting submissions for a future issue on gender, sport and the Olympics. According to the call, "We are interested in exploring the central role which gender and sexuality play in shaping ideas about athleticism, sport culture and the body, and the significant ways in which athletic events such as the Olympics work to transform conceptions of public space, national boundaries and identities, and gendered self- presentations and performances."

For more information about the call and specific submission guidelines you can visit the journal's online submission site.
