Call for Book Chapters | Social Justice and the Modern Athlete: Exploring the Role of Athlete Activism in Social Change | Call ends April 30, 2021
The overarching focus of the book is to explore the role athletes have played in raising awareness of and advancing social justice issues. Authors are asked to consider various aspects of athlete involvement and influence, using a wide range of theoretical perspectives. Please note that although the book will provide an early historical chapter as the foundation for exploring athlete activism, it focuses on the past 30 years (1990-present), reaching beyond the Civil Rights era.

Call for Book Chapters | Trends and Advances in Sport and Leisure Management: Expanding the Frontiers | Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s Guest Edited Collection
The purpose of this edited collection is to better understand from an interdisciplinary perspective, the global forces that reshape sport and leisure provision, alongside the responses of key organisations and stakeholders.

Call for Papers | The Sporting Presidency: Presidents and Sport from Theodore Roosevelt to Donald Trump, Edinburgh University Press. Call ends October 19, 2020
Starting with studies of Roosevelt’s significant role in linking the presidency with fandom, advocacy of, and active participation in sports, this volume traces how occupants of the White House continued to develop these connections in various guises across the following century. Though historians have certainly not ignored such associations, the variety of case studies represented here seeks to provide a wider and more multidisciplinary selection of standpoints.
Call for Chapters | Body, Politics, and Nation: Intersections of (Post)Modernity. Call ends August 31, 2020
Taking the timely but historically-rooted entanglements between the three – body, politics and nation seriously, we are particularly interested in submissions that highlight how the state and capitalism in their neoliberal iterations seek to control, mould, and discipline the body along the axes of gender, caste, race, sexuality, income etc. in their pursuit of power and profit.
