Courtney M. Cox is a doctoral candidate fascinated with the obstacles and opportunities located at the intersections of race, gender, class and sexuality in sport and sports media.

She's also intrigued by online dialogues of these intersections across social media platforms and how storytelling is adapted to new media. Her mantra and motivation in regard to this work is to "render the invisible visible", a phrase that perfectly describes her purpose as both a scholar and advocate within the world of sport.

Courtney's dissertation, focused on the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA), places cultural studies, political economy, sport communication, and feminist theory in conversation with one another to create a vibrant critical/cultural history of the league.
