Dr. Yuka Nakamura is an Assistant Professor in the School of Kinesiology and Health Science at York University. She studies how race, class and gender, impact people’s identities and sport experiences. Dr. Nakamura is especially interested in sport organized by ethnic and/or religious groups, in ways that resist categories like the nation, but also reinscribe racialized understandings of belonging within diaspora.
