Recent Research & Reference Articles

  1. Highly Recommended by CHOICE Reviews - Women, Soccer and Transnational Migration

    Edited by Sine Agergaard and Nina Clara Tiesler

    'This thoughtful selection of theoretical and original research articles is international and interdisciplinary in scope. One is tempted to dismiss the topic as insignificant; however, the book touches on important contemporary social issues: gender, sport and society, globalization of sports, professionalization, women's international labor migration, and skilled transnational labor migration.... The book's unique contribution lies in advancing a transnational perspective of labor migration. The editors have done a great job of bracketing the empirical studies with theoretical discussions. Summing Up: Highly recommended.' - G. K. Hearn, Idaho State University, CHOICE April 2015  Order your copy today

  4. New - Domestic Violence in Diverse Contexts

    Concentrating on the various forms of domestic abuse and its occurrence and manifestations within different contexts, this book argues that gender is centrally implicated in the unique factors that shape violence across all these areas. Exploring how domestic violence across varying contexts impacts on different women’s experiences and understandings of abuse, this innovative work draws on post-structural feminist theory and how these ideas view, and potentially allow, gendered explanations of domestic violence. Domestic Violence in Diverse Contexts is suitable for academics and researchers interested in issues around violence and gender.

Pioneering, thought-provoking, and deeply knowledgeable.' – Laura Miller, University of Missouri-St. Louis, USA
