UofT KPE Instagram photo#uoftkpe’s newest assistant professor is ready to break down barriers for her students and explore subjects of race, diaspora, globalization and physical culture. Janelle Joseph stepped into her new role on July 1, 2019. She traces her interest in the sociology of sport to her childhood: her father was a professional cricket player in his native Antigua, and her brother, Jamaal, signed with the Florida Marlins (now the Miami Marlins). Her fascination with gender, race and movement cultures grew as an undergraduate studying kinesiology at Western University. She went on to obtain a Master’s and Ph.D. in exercise science at #uoftkpe working under the supervision of Peter Donnelly, and also completed two postdoctoral fellowships internationally. Janelle’s current course focuses on representation and exposure of racialized and Indigenous athletes, who are an often-neglected part of the Canadian sporting story. Another aspect of the course looks at the barriers and discrimination these athletes face. She says she wants all her students – no matter their ambitions after university – to learn about the inequities facing people of different backgrounds. “Regardless of what field they’re in, they all deserve to understand where people of different backgrounds are coming from and have an awareness of how they might contribute to changing the structures that are preventing full participation right now.” Learn more about Janelle’s research at www.kpe.utoronto.ca.UofT KPE Instagram photoWANTED: ATHLETIC CLOTHES + SHOES!
