In this episode, all three hosts are joined by Dr. Erin Hatton to discuss her brilliant intervention Coerced: Work Under Threat of Punishment and how status coercion shapes working conditions in college sport. Erin Hatton is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University at Buffalo and also author of The Temp Economy: From Kelly Girls to Permatemps in Postwar America.
Too often, the conversation around exploitation in college sport becomes strictly focused on their lack of access to the free market. This episode moves beyond that paradigm to explore how the power dynamics inherent to college sport as presently conceived are far more coercive, harmful, and exploitative than we often imagine.
You can find Erin Hatton's book Coerced here. You can find an article she authored on status coercion in college sport for The Conversation here. You can find her on Twitter @eehatton.
