CONFERENCE: 11th Annual Donald Macintosh Memorial Lecture and Sociology of Sport


Saturday 19 January 2013, Queen's University,
Kingston, Ontario
9 am to 4:30 pm

The School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen's University would like to invite all those interested in socio-cultural studies of sport to a day conference that will be held in the memory of our colleague Dr. Don Macintosh. The conference will be held at Queen's University in Kingston on Saturday 19 January 2013, from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Registration will be available at the door. The suggested fees are $30 for faculty and $15 for students (no one will be turned away for an inability to cover the fee).

The conference program (see below) will consist of graduate student presentations, a catered lunch, and the annual Donald Macintosh Memorial Lecture, which will be given this year by Dr. Cathy van Ingen, associate professor in the Department of Kinesiology at Brock University. Dr. van Ingen’s research utilizes various theories and methods including those drawn from cultural studies, cultural geography, and poststructuralist and feminist theories of the body. She is one of the founders of the Shape Your Life boxing program for female and trans survivors of violence in Toronto.

Dr. van Ingen has written the first biographical work on Hall of Fame boxer, “Dixie Kid” Aaron Brown, in Aycock & Scott’s (eds.) (2011) The First Black Boxing Champions: Essays on Fighters of the 1800s to the 1920s. She also has written articles on women’s boxing published in The Sociology of Sport Journal, Women in Sport and Physical Activity Journal, Feminist Media Studies and a forthcoming article in the Journal of Sport History called “Seeing What Frames Our Seeing”: Seeking Histories on Early Black Female Boxers. Dr. van Ingen will speak on "Ruptures, right hooks, and ring work: A methodology of ‘getting lost’ working with survivors of violence."

Dr. van Ingen's lecture is free and all are welcome to attend. It will be held in room 203 in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies building (28 Division St.), Queen's University at 11:15am. Free parking is available in the above-ground lot just next to the building.
