Nicole M. LaVoi, PhD.

Tucker Center director and School of Kinesiology senior lecturer Nicole M. LaVoi, PhD, is a panelist on the October 8 “What are the consequences of COVID-19 for women’s sport,” Zoom panel [422939] at the 2020 International Sociology of Sport Association (ISSA) 2020 Conference. LaVoi’s co-panelists include Tucker Center Affiliated Scholar Dr. Cheryl Cooky (Purdue), Dr. Fiona MacLachlan (Victoria University, Melbourne) and Dr. Holly Thorpe (University of Waikato, New Zealand), with moderator Dr. Madeleine Pape (University of Lausanne). The aim of the virtual panel is to discuss the potential impacts of the coronavirus crisis on women’s sport when there are good reasons to believe that the pandemic will disproportionately and significantly impact women’s sport and that those impacts could be long-lasting. ISSA comprises an active body of scholars who study sport from the perspectives of sociology, social psychology, anthropology, history and political economy.
