of Sport Administration and Leadership Professor Maylon
Hanold published “(De/Re)Constructing Leading Bodies: Developing Critical
Attitudes and Somaesthetic Practices" in The
Embodiment of Leadership (Wiley 2013). In her chapter, Hanold examines
views of the body and its relationship to self-awareness in the leadership
literature. “The understanding of self-awareness needs to be
expanded. The work of self-awareness should be to bring forth the biases and
prejudices we hold in our bodies because these biases work against inclusive
leadership in subtle and unconscious ways,” Hanold said. “Developing a critical
awareness of the body and engaging in subsequent somasethetic practices are
needed to fully realize leadership practices oriented to promoting leadership
for a just and humane world."
Hanold received her Ed.D. from Seattle
University and has been on the faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences since
2008. Her research focuses on leadership in sport, sport cultures, and the
meanings people attach to participation. Her published works include World
Sports: A Reference Handbook (ABC-CLIO 2012), "Beyond the Marathon:
(De)constructing Female Ultrarunning Bodies" in Sociology of Sport Journal (2010)
and "Leadership, Women in Sport, and Embracing Empathy" in Advancing Women in Leadership Online
The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest
college in Seattle
University, offers a B.S.
in Sport and Exercise Science and a Master
