    Biographical history

    Margaret Ann Hall was born in 1942. Ann earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Physical Education from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. She earned a Master of Arts from the Faculty of Physical Education from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta in 1968; her thesis was entitled "A History of Women's Sport in Canada Prior to World War I." She received her doctorate from the University of Birmingham in England.

    Ann joined the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta in 1968, where she remained until her retirement in 1997. Her teaching and research interests focused primarily on gender relations in sport and leisure as well as the application of feminist epistemology and methodology to the social sciences, and specifically the sociology of sport. She is also a former Chair of the Women's Studies Program in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta.

    She has written extensively on the topic of women in sport, presented at dozens of conferences internationally, and lectured at several universities. Her publications have included: Fair Ball: Towards Sex Equality in Canadian Sport (with Dorothy A. Richardson, 1982), The Gender Structure of National Sport Organizations (with Dallas Cullen and Trevor Slack, 1990), Feminism and Sporting Bodies: Essays on Theory and Practice (1996), Honoring the Legacy: Fifty Years of the International Association of Physical Education and Sport for Girls and Women (with Gertrud Pfister, 1999), The Girl and the Game: A History of Women's Sport in Canada (2002), and The Grads Are Playing Tonight!
