Research interests

Amanda's research draws on qualitative methodologies to explore the ways in which cultural and societal factors shape identities, professional practice and pedagogies in Physical Education, Health Education and Sport. To date, much of this work has been largely centered on the role gender can play in these processes. Spanning various contexts including school-based Health and Physical Education, community sporting clubs and Physical Education Teacher Education settings this work seeks to promote more equitable, enjoyable and meaningful experiences for youth in physical education and sport.
