Feminist Dialogues Speaker Series: Exploring the Underrepresentation of Women Coaches in Canadian University Sport
Exploring the Underrepresentation of Women Coaches in Canadian University Sport
Currently, there are disproportionally few women who hold coaching positions within Canadian university sport. To investigate the gender gap, Dr. Hayley Baker's research explores the institutional practices that inform women coaches' working realities. In her talk, Dr. Baker will describe the taken-for-granted nature of university sport, calling for a more nuanced understanding of women's work in coaching to address gender disparity and diversify leadership in this space.

Feminist Dialogues Speaker Series: “But do you know what day it is?”
“But do you know what day it is?”:
Dracula, Gendered Empire, and the Breakdown of Patriarchal-Imperial Colonial Discourse
Victorian patriarchal-imperial discourse justified colonization abroad and men's ownership of women at home. In Bram Stoker's Dracula, the frontiers between internal/external, home/elsewhere exist everywhere, and are often associated with women who hold knowledge-power that undermines the Crew of Light's assumptions about the ‘natural’ inferiority of women, feminized men, and land. Muddled marriage, multiple feminized frontiers, and knowledgeable local women all challenge the idea that colonization was a natural offshoot of British patriarchal responsibility. If only the Crew would listen!
