Nicolas Gourde

Nicolas is a Master’s student at the University of Ottawa. His research seeks to investigate the various mechanisms at play contributing to the (re)production or transformation of the cis-heteronormative physical/sporting culture(s) in physical education teacher education programs. Through this project, he hopes to provide a critical opportunity to expose the limits and regulatory aims of this gendered culture, but also bearing witness to subversive practices that disturb (and potentially transform) it. Outside of his studies, Nicolas is passionate about cooking, physical training and pottery.
