    Offentlig folkehelse­arbeid og idretts- og helseideologien: Folkehelsekoordinatorers erfaringer av samarbeid med frivillige idrettslag

    Den här referentgranskade artikeln av Anne Tjønndal undersöker hur idrotts- och hälsoideologi uttrycks av offentliga anställda i den norska folkhälsosektorn när de delar sina erfarenheter av att arbeta med frivilliga idrottslag i folkhälsoarbetet. Analysen visar hur samarbete med frivilliga idrottslag uppfattas som positivt och som en resurs i folkhälsoarbetet i fysisk aktivitet, särskilt när barn och ungdomar är målgruppen.

    New Esport book fills a void, but has notable weaknesses

    Whether or not esports can be incorporated in the wider concept of traditional sports is a serious bone of contention among sport scholars which is touched upon in Ryan Rogers’ collected volume Understanding Esports: An Introduction to the Global Phenomenon (Lexington Books), though not as cleverly as in many previous works. And our reviewer Anne Tjønndal have other reservations as well, however some chapters do pass muster.

    Excellent textbook for outdoor learning, albeit not for all

    The textbook Adventure and Society by Simon Beames, Chris Mackie and Matthew Atencio (Palgrave Macmillan) offers a broad, cross-disciplinary study of various societal aspects of adventure, ranging from the everyday to the extreme.

    Martial arts between culture and sport

    Paul Bowman, Professor of Cultural Studies at the School of Journalism, Media and Culture, Cardiff University, has published profusely in the field of martial arts studies over the years. His latest effort is Deconstructing Martial Arts (Cardiff University Press), which we asked Anne Tjønndal to review for idrottsforum.org. She finds Bowman’s approach to his subject matter refreshing, albeit not easily accessible nor, in terms of methodology, fully convincing.

    Important and refreshing insights into the digitalization of sport and leisure

    In their anthology Re-thinking Leisure in a Digital Age (Routledge), editors Michael Silk, Brad Millington, Emma Rich and Anthony Bush set themselves the task of providing critical engagement with digital technologies in a sport and leisure context. Anne Tjønndal has read the book for idrottsforum.org, and she contends that the individual contributions as well as the book as a whole are far-sighted and provide vital clues for a positive understanding of the brave new digital world.

Given that, Anne Tjønndal and Mads Skauge has made a brilliant job of it!
