Biography

Victoria Jackson is a Lecturer of History in the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies.  She is a sports historian, and studies the history of sport in the U.S. higher education system.  Her current book project, Justice and Injustice in American Intercollegiate Athletics, connects the effort to expand opportunity for college women in sport and the problems of big-time college sports which disproportionately affect young black men.  Her dissertation, Title IX and the Big Time, presents the history of big-time intercollegiate athletics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill through the school's women program, from 1950 through the 1990s.  She is co-facilitator of the Institute for Humanities Research (IHR) research cluster on gender and sport.  Her sports history course offerings include Sports in United States History, History of College Sports, History of Baseball: America's Pastime and American Dreaming, and History of the Olympic Movement.  She holds an MA and PhD from Arizona State University, and a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she graduated summa cum laude and became a member of Phi Beta Kappa.  Jackson was also a student-athlete for UNC and ASU competing in cross country and track and field, a national champion for the Sun Devils at 10,000 meters, and a professional track and field athlete.  She would like for her ASU school record in the 5,000 meters to be broken ASAP.

In 2017-2018, Jackson is partnering with Sun Devil Athletics to tell ASU's Title IX story.  This research initiative will support a year-long celebration of women in sports and higher education.  Follow along and join the fun with #TitleIXTuesday and #TitleIXat45.
