Sport, Education and Society (SES) is a leading international journal which provides a focal point for the publication of social science research on pedagogy, policy, and the body in society and the wide range of associated cultural, political and ethical issues in physical activity, sport and health. The journal encourages contributions not only from social scientists and educationalists studying the relationships between pedagogy, the body and society, but from all professionals with interests in theoretical and empirical interests relating to policy, curriculum, social inclusion, equity and identity, and progressive educational development in physical activity, health and sport.
This Special Edition on LGBTQIA+ Topics in Health, Wellbeing, and Education seeks to bring together an assemblage of voices from social science, education, health, and physical activity to address LGBTQIA+ topics in their respective research areas. Health, wellbeing, and education are inclusive of a variety of fields such as sociology of health, education, gender studies, queer studies, sport and physical cultural studies, health education, physical education, as well as psychology. By bringing together various disciplines, we aim to provide a collection of papers that produce diverse perspectives, tensions, and augmentations in furthering dialogue around LGBTQIA+ issues in health, wellbeing, and education.
Although it will be for authors to decide on titles and foci, the following areas are identified as particularly relevant to this special issue:
- LGBTQIA+ young people’s experiences in health, wellbeing, and educational settings.
- LGBTQIA+ adult experiences in health, wellbeing, and educational settings.
