Dunja Antunovic, PhD, assistant professor of sport sociology in the School of Kinesiology and affiliated scholar in the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, recently co-authored a book entitled, Serving Equality: Feminism, Media and Women’s Sports, with Cheryl Cooky, PhD (Purdue University), also a Tucker Center affiliated scholar. The book offers a theoretical and methodological intervention to the field of feminist sports media studies examining how feminism shapes media narratives about women’s sports. It is featured as a part of an “Author Meets Critic” panel at the annual North American Society for the Sociology of Sport Conference in Las Vegas on November 12, where Cooky will be a panelist on behalf of both authors. Serving Equality has received recent praise in reviews appearing in the European Journal for Sport and Society and the Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media, with comments such as “both thought provoking and engaging,” and “broadens the current understanding of the sports media landscape entirely.”
