Abstract

This thesis explores the transforming embodiment of sex that is integral to the development of running/jogging culture between 1979-1995. Actor-network theory, a foucauldian approach and critical realism are each used to elucidate different aspects of running including the way it defines sex through the body, clothing, space and the rules and practices of running, jogging and racing.

Keywords:running, jogging, sex, gender, actor-network theory, critical realism, foucauldian theory, Judith Butler
