Snabbare, högre ...och det Tredje Könet: Om könsgränserna inom idrotten och överträdandet av dessa

Faster, higher ...and the Third Gender : On the gender boundaries in sports and how they’re exceeded (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the gender boundaries in sports. I do this by exploring three cases in which these boundaries, at least on the surface, have been questioned: the transsexual tennis player Renée Richards, the east European runners Marita Koch and Jarmila Kratochvilova and the Swedish golf player Annika Sörenstam. The results point out different mechanisms that contain the"danger"and restore"security". But they also point out a criticism against the struggle for equality in sports, which is based on the preserving of differences and therefore cannot challenge the ideological assumptions about gender in sports.

Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen undersöker idrottens könsgränser genom att analysera tre fall då dessa, åtminstone vid en första anblick, har ifrågasatts: den transexuella tennisspelaren Renée Richards, de östeuropeiska löparna Marita Koch och Jarmila Kratochvilova samt svenska golfspelaren Annika Sörenstam. Resultatet pekar dels på olika mekanismer som verkat för att ofarliggöra dessa gränsöverskridare och införliva dem i den befintliga könsstrukturen. Men det visar också på en problematisk bild av idrottens egna jämlikhetsprojekt som bygger på att upprätthålla skillnader och inte tycks leda till någon ideologisk förändring.
