About Me

I am an associate professor of Kinesiology at Penn State, with an affiliate faculty appointment in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I am the author or editor of five books, including Qualifying Times: Points of Change in U.S. Women’s Sport History (University of Illinois Press, 2014) and Women’s Sports: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford University Press, 2018). I have published more than fifty article or book chapters, many of which focus on the history of women in sport, racial politics, and cultural memory. I am also an award-winning teacher and the recipient of the Fulbright Senior Scholar Award. I currently serve as the academic editor of the International Journal of the History of Sport and as co-editor for the University of Illinois Sport and Society series.
