    Early Commercialisation in Sport: Looking for Evidence and Searching for Meaning

    In his article for idrottsforum.org, Wray Vamplew argues that previous research on commercialism and sport takes too narrow a definition of commercialisation which instead should consider all economic/monetary transactions involving sport. This new definition has significant implications for when we can say that sport and commerce were becoming intertwined. Even in Ancient Greece and Rome, there is significant information on commercial activity involved with sport.

    Kroppsøving og idrett i Norge – overlappende men distinktive felt

    Frivillig organiserad sport och skolämnet idrott har nära historiska band i Norge. I denna referentgranskade artikel betraktar Evind Å. Skille och Kjersti Mordal Moen föreningsidrott och skolidrott som två fält i Bourdieus mening, och söker svar på följande fråga: Hur kan sport och skolidrott förstås som överlappande men distinkta fält? För att besvara frågan analyserade forskarna dokumentation inom de två fälten, de statliga läroplanerna för idrottsutbildning, och Norges idrottsförbunds policydokument.

    Tolkningsutrymme och undervisningspraktiska konsekvenser: En språklig analys av ämnesplaner för ämnet Idrott och hälsa

    Ämnet Idrott och hälsa har ett särskilt brett innehåll, vilket gör att kunskapskraven beskrivs som svårpreciserade och att ett specifikt innehåll är svårt att legitimera. I Katarina Lundins, Susanne Linnérs och Katarina Schenkers undersökning har de använt analysredskap från den systemisk-funktionella grammatiken för att undersöka hur lärarnas valmöjligheter uttrycks språkligt i ämnesplanerna och vilka konsekvenser detta kan får för innehållet i undervisningen.
