KSR 775 - Social Dimensions of Performance in Sport

3 units (fi 6)(EITHER, 0-3S-0)

Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation

This course critically examines various power-knowledge formations and systems of discrimination such as racism and sexism and the implications they hold for those involved in the provision and production of sport. The starting point for this course is that performance and coaching in sport is an inherently complex, uncertain, and ambiguous process with long-standing colonial ties and neoliberal tendencies. This course provides students with a number of strategies and approaches informed by social theory to enable them to reflect on the effects of these various systems and processes in order to design and implement more effective and ethical practices. Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KSR 775, KSR 575, KRLS 575, or PERLS 575. Sections may be offered at an increased rate of fee assessment; refer to the Tuition and Fees page in the University Regulations sections of the Calendar.
