Mon, November 7, 2011

Sociology graduate student Letisha Brown received the Barbara A. Brown Outstanding Student Paper Award in the master's students section of the North American Society for the Sociology of Sport, for her paper "The Spectacle of Blackness: Race, Representation and the Black Female Athlete."

The NASSS annual conference titled "Revolutionary Sporting Bodies: Technologies in Practice" this year took place in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Papers winning the award are typically published in the flagship journal of NASSS, the Sociology of Sport Journal, and many former winners have gone on to become leading figures in the sociology of sport.

Kudos to Letisha!
