The College Sport Research Institute welcomes the submission of abstracts for its 12th annual CSRI Conference on College Sport to be held at the USC Alumni Center, University of South Carolina Columbia, SC.

The conference’s mission is to: “Provide students, scholars, and college-sport practitioners a public forum to discuss relevant and timely college sport issues.”

Submission guidelines

To be considered for acceptance, abstracts should reflect college-sport research situated at the intersection of sport, politics, economics, law, sociology and society. Such research may investigate race/ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, nationalism/patriotism, or immigration issues within college sport. The research should have reached a fairly complete stage of development, and the abstract should provide enough detail to allow reviewers to judge its quality. Abstracts proposing teaching-related sessions on college-sport issues will also be considered, as long as the abstract provides sufficient detail to judge the proposed session’s quality.

    • Submitted abstracts should not be concurrently submitted to another
    • There is a two-abstract submission limit, including multi-author
    • Abstracts submitted by students must have an advisor’s
