    In a new anthology from Routledge, Digital Football Cultures: Fandom, Identities and Resistance edited by Stefan Lawrence & Garry Crawford, a number of football scholars look at the digitalized future of the beautiful game.

    Marketing the Perfect Ride: A Study of the Marketing of Horse Tourism on the Internet

    This article by Aage Radmann and Susanna Hedenborg shows that the marketing och horse tourism builds on story-telling related to trust; (implied) common experiences of organizer and tourist in relation to horses and horsemanship; and natural and cultural landscapes. In contrast to the representation of women in other sport contexts, women in horse tourism are portrayed as active participants in a challenging athletic activity.

    The cultural conditions and social contexts of female sports fandom unveiled

    Since the 2012 publication of Sport and its Female Fans, which she co-edited with Peter Mewett, Kim Toffoletti has spearheaded research in the field of female sports fandom. Her new book, Women Sport Fans: Identification, Participation, Representation (Routledge) continues those efforts, and successfully, according to our reviewer, Aage Radmann, who is duly impressed.

    Women’s football in a man’s world – a never-ending story of subordination

    Lise Joern reviews a collected volume from the impressive “Football Research in an Enlarged Europe” series at Palgrave Macmillan, Female Football Players and Fans: Intruding into a Man’s World, edited by Gertrud Pfister and Stacey Pope. She appreciates the book and its contributions but ends on a note of pessimism about the situation for women’s football and its fans.

The purpose of this study is to analyze stable cultures in cyberspace in Sweden and Norway. Horse riders’ communication in social media in relation to horse-keeping will be focused.

    Kunnskapsløft for friluftsliv må til!

    Det råder tvärpolitisk enighet om att friluftsliv kommer att få ökad samhällelig betydelse under de kommande åren. Detta ställer krav på forskningsbaserad kunskap och behovet av en plan för hur offentliga myndigheter ska stärka forskningen om friluftsliv, skriver ett antal ledande norska företrädare för friluftsforskning inom akademin och intresseorganisationer.

    Important sociological study of female fandom – “fills a huge gap”

    While sports in general has become considerably less of a man’s world, until quite recently sports fandom seemed to attract no women. Falsely, though, as witnessed by Stacey Pope’s latest book, The Feminization of Sports Fandom: A Sociological Study (Routledge). Aage Radmann studies female fandom in Sweden, and he is delighted with Pope’s research and findings.
