About Forums:

This is a place to share stories, thoughts, and reactions to the films and discussions of the Women, Sport, and Gender film course. Think of it not as a place to "write", but rather as another form of conversation: a place to leave your ideas and feelings for the benefit of others, and a place to learn from the ideas and feelings of others. You should leave your thoughts here after each film showing/discussion, but are welcome to visit and revisit as often as you like. Remember the idea of the course is not to defend particular positions but rather to learn from each other as the course goes along.

Reading and Posting to Forums:

Because of the number of people involved, we have set up four separate forums for the course. Students have been randomly assigned to the forums. Forum names have been taken from historically prominent women tennis athletes; Billie Jean King, Althea Gibson, Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. You're welcome to read any or all of the forums, but please do your own posting in your assigned forum. To do so, click below on the name of the forum. Information about how to post will be provided there. You can similarly click on a name below to read other forums.

Weekly Forum Questions:

The weekly forum question will be posted by the moderator each Friday morning. Enter your assigned forum group, link to the "last posted question," and then scroll up to the comment "Week xx Question." Respond to the question by linking to "Post a Comment." Each student will be asked to write an initial comment, and then return to the site before the next class meeting, read the comments from the others and respond.


Note Archiving Date!

Please post by the following Wednesday evening. On Thursday of each new week, the forums will be cleared and the comments made available in an archived form as a contribution to further discussion both in this course and more generally.
