For this week’s episode, we speak with Rosa Campbell who is an historian and writer. She holds a PhD in history from the University of Cambridge and is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Edinburgh. She works on the global history of feminism. She writes often for a public audience recently at Overland, Meanjin, The White Review and Public Books. She leads public history projects with cultural institutions. In this episode, Rosa uses the digital map she has created for Overland to take us through the history of women’s sport and fitness culture in Sydney and around the world; the role of sport in women’s liberation movements; and how the historical struggle for cis women in sport is linked to the current struggle for trans women in sport.
