Description In this Brown Bag talk, Denisa Krásná introduces her forthcoming lifewriting collection on outdoor counternarratives. Co-edited with Alena Rainsberry, the collection features the personal stories of women whitewater kayakers, climbers/mountaineers, and highliners from North America and Europe, with the aim of visibilizing female experiences in “extreme” sports. Though the book primarily focuses on the female experience, the authors take an intersectional approach in their analysis of the role of gender, race, class, and sexuality in the social construction of "extreme" sports, as well as in their consideration of disparities in access to the outdoors.
