Fighting Women: A Symposium on Women's Boxing

This two-day symposium seeks to explore the diverse ways women have participated in amateur and professional boxing. The purpose will be to investigate women’s involvement in boxing in its broadest sense, from historical, ethnographic, cultural, and artistic perspectives. This multidisciplinary approach hopes to take into account the multiple, often intersecting, aspects of this exploitative and dysfunctional, yet equally compelling and beautiful, sport. This symposium will be held June 21-22, 2013 at The Art Bar, Gladstone Hotel, Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is hosted by Brock University. Proposal deadline is January 31, 2013.
