Synopsis

Gender Politics in US College Athletic Departments The Case of the University of Minnesota Merger by Lisa A. Kihl, Vicki D. Schull, Sally Shaw

This book examines the gendered politics in the context of a merger of the women's and men's athletic departments at the University of Minnesota over a ten year plus span. Examining the athletic department merger helps us understand women's continual under-representation in University athletics despite Title IX legislation passing 40 years ago. Using interview with organizational stakeholders and archival document data, the book explores how organizational change in the form of a merger is gendered with relation to the premerger, merged, post-merger stages.
