|3:30 pm||“Serving like a Girl: Suzanne Lenglen, Tennis, and the Politics of Gender” Thomas Commons|
Lecture by Dr. Roxanna Curto, University of Iowa.
For the past 20 years, on average eight of the top 10 highest-paid female athletes in the world have been tennis players, many of whom have reached a level of stardom largely unmatched by women in other sports. But does this suggest that tennis as an institution is more equitable and has achieved greater gender parity? Or do extreme tensions—as evidenced by recent comments made by male players, organizers, and Serena Williams—indicate otherwise?
This talk will examine the relationship between tennis and gender for the past century in England, France, and the U.S., as well as more globally. The analysis will consider not only ideas about strokes and playing style, but fashion, the female body, and eating disorders.
|6:30 pm-8:30 pm||The Yarn Squad Cole Library|
Join us for Yarn Squad EVERY Tuesday, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in Room 326. Knitters, crocheters, and all fiber enthusiasts are welcome.
