Dr. Sarah Kate Crews

Course Leader and Senior Lecturer in Performance and Media
My name is Sarah Crews, I am a performance studies scholar and senior lecturer in Performance and Media. I am an avid boxing fan but I feel passionate that female boxers are undervalued and underpromoted in the sport. Narratives of women’s boxing are often misunderstood, dismissed or forgotten altogether. But female boxers occupy an important position in popular culture and their work might help us rethink issues such as period shame, violence against women, the limitations that young women and girls face in sport, and how female bodies are critiqued and discussed in media more generally.

As we all became more inward in our thinking and movements during time in lockdown, I began considering my own journey from teenager who was too scared to go on school trips to a global expedition leader, focusing on what had enabled me to eventually step out and embrace world experience in a big way.
