About this event

In this session we will be looking at transcripts taken from a TV debate about the inclusion of transgender athletes in female sports. My primary focus is on the way that the different participants (re)frame the parameters of the debate and what they achieve in doing so. I am also interested in the different ways that the participants position themselves, the other participants and transgender athletes within the interactions. However, I am interested in all observations from attendees.

If anyone wants to watch the full debate beforehand to contextualise the sections we will be looking at in the session, it is available through the following link:
