About the Award (from the SHAPE website)
The Rachel Bryant Lecture honors Rachel Bryant, a pioneer and architect in the field of sport for girls and women. The lecturer is an individual who continues to carry on the spirit of this remarkable woman who gave so much to the world of girls and women in sport.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Dao has accepted the History of Sport and International Physical Cultures position and will be joining the KIN Department in the Fall 2019.
Michael Dao recently defended his Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Toronto under the guidance of some of the top sport studies scholars in North America, and previously earned his M.A. degree from our department at San Jose State. His dissertation work involved a year long ethnography of sport for development in Vietnam, and he plans to continue this work, as well as other projects dealing with sport and immigration and other issues here at SJSU.
We are excited to welcome a newly minted Dr. Mike Dao into KIN as an assistant professor.
We look forward to his contributions to teaching and research in our department, and think that we will find that there will be great potential for collaborative work with other faculty.
Please join us in welcoming Michael to the department.
