Academics in various disciplines are writing about sport. Sport in Society is a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary forum for academics to discuss the growing relationship of sport to significant areas of modern life. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: NEGOTIATING FEMALE FITNESS DOPING: GENDER, IDENTITY AND TRANSGRESSIONS by Jesper Andreasson & Thomas Johansson.
The purpose of PESP is to provide a forum for high quality educational research for a national and international readership. We intend this research to have a high impact on both policy and practice. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: ‘THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY': EXPLORING EXPRESSIVE DANCE ASSIGNMENTS IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION by Torun Mattsson & Håkan Larsson.
In Jörg Krieger’s and Stephan Wassong’s edited collection Dark Sides of Sport (Common Ground), leading international scholars explore multifaceted historical and contemporary challenges for sport. We asked Mark Brooke at the National University of Singapore for a review. Our reviewer is very appreciative of the book; it fills a void in the existing academic literature as it explores, in one book, various areas of deviance that pose a threat to sport.
Not a final statement but a starting point: timely and extremely useful handbook for qualitative sport studies
Just in time for the publication of Mark Brooke’s review of the Routledge Handbook of Qualitative Research in Sport and Exercise, edited by Brett Smith & Andrew C. Sparkes, Routledge chose to release the paperback edition, thereby decreasing the RRP from £190 to £40 – which is good, given that the book, according to our reviewer, is a valuable tool for social and cultural science scholars in the field of sport and exercise.
