    Whose Game?Gender and Power in Fantasy Sports

    KissaneRebecca Joyce  著 Temple University Press 出版 2020/4/1 出版

    fantasy sports have the opportunity to provide a sporting community in which gendered physical presence plays no role--a space where men and women can compete and interact on a level playing field. whose game? shows however that while many turn to this space to socialize with friends or participate in a uniquely active and competitive fandom men who play also depend on fantasy sports to perform a boyhood vision of masculinity otherwise inaccessible to them. authors rebecca kissane and sarah winslow draw on a rich array of survey interview and observational data to examine how gender race and class frame the experiences of everyday fantasy sports players. this pioneering book examines gendered structures and processes such as jock statsculinity--a nerdish form of masculine one-upmanship--and how women are often rendered as outsiders. ultimately whose game? demonstrates that fantasy sports are more than just an inconsequential leisure activity. this online world bleeds into participants’ social lives in gendered ways--forging and strengthening relationships but also taking participants’ time and attention to generate negative emotions stress discord and unproductivity.
