Professor Pirkko Markula, Physical Education and Recreation Faculty, University of Alberta

Dr. Markula, a professor of socio-cultural studies of physical activity, is also a contemporary dancer. She has been experimenting with dance performance ethnography as a way of representing her research on women’s active bodies. This presentation draws from her collaboration with American poet, Brigit Pegeen Kelly. As a work in progress, the performance ethnography, with a working title ‘Outolintu’, is planned to be presented at the Congress of Qualitative Inquiry at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, USA, later this year.
