    What has Covid-19 meant for sports? Too soon to tell.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on every aspect of our social, cultural, and commercial lives, including the world of sport. Philosophy, Sport, and the Pandemic, edited by Jeffrey P. Fry and Andrew Edgar (Routledge), examines the ethical and philosophical dimensions of the intersection of COVID-19 and sport. Shawn Klein finds some really good contributions, but also chapters that are repetitive, or not sufficiently philosophical, or where the Covid relevance is tenuous. Recommendable, thus, but with qualifications.

    Disputas | Spillets gang! En institusjonell etnografisk undersøkelse om kjønn, makt og styring i idrettsorganisasjonen i Norge av Hanne Elisabeth Sogn, Norges idrettshøgskole, 2...

    Norsk idrett har i all hovedsak vært dominert, utviklet og ledet av menn fra og med Norges Idrettsforbund (NIF) ble stiftet i 1946. I den offentlige diskurs og i forskning om idrettsorganisasjonen beskrives norsk idrett ofte som en «mannsbastion», en organisasjon preget av en sementert mannskultur og manglende kjønnslikestilling. Formålet med Hanne Sogns prosjekt er å fremskaffe kunnskap om mulige årsaker til den vedvarende mannsdominans i toppledersjiktet i organisasjonen.
