Seminar Series: Anti-Racist and Decolonial Approaches to Exercise Sciences – Feb 10

Although the diversity among participants in Canadian athletic spaces and students in Kinesiology and Exercise Sciences programs has steadily increased, our organizations still struggle to develop a deep understanding of (anti-)racism issues, awareness of ongoing structural barriers, and actions to ensure representation and justice for those who experience racialization and oppression. Dr. Joseph will share her perspectives on decolonizing sport studies as well as her research, which takes a data-driven, evidence-based approach to exposing the operations of whiteness in sport and education.

Dr. Janelle Joseph is an award-winning Assistant Professor in Critical Studies of Race in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Toronto. She is founder and director of the Indigeneity, Diaspora, Equity, and Anti-racism in Sport (IDEAS) Research Lab and author of the text Sport in the Black Atlantic: Cricket Canada and the Caribbean Diaspora. Dr Joseph’s current research focuses on decolonizing sport studies, and anti-racism activism among Black athletes and educators.
