Professor takes to the Olympic boxing ring

The only university professor on the field of play team, Lynda will be assisting athletes and coaches during events. Lynda will also be speaking about the visual culture of boxing, trying to find some productive dialogue between the academy and the boxing gym at a conference on Sport and Psychoanalysis at the Freud Museum this summer.
