    Social sporting innovations from Hogwarts to Bruges

    With her new anthology, Social Innovation in Sport (Palgrave Macmillan), Anne Tjönndal aims at providing fresh insights on how social innovations are utilized as strategies to make sport more accessible and inclusive. Our reviewer Alan Bairner is doubtful however, seeing sport’s adaptability to change as more often than not driven by market logics, since sport, he claims, is inherently conservative, reactionary even, in its refusal to change its core values and renew its traditional hierarchies.

    A most timely textbook on online research methods in sport studies

    Taking your research to the ’net was for many a reality before the corona pandemic, but as Daniel Bjärsholm points out in his review of Jamie Cleland’s, Kevin Dixon’s and Daniel Kilvington’s textbook Online Research Methods in Sport Studies (Routledge), it’s now a necessity to master online research rather than a preference. And for that purpose, this book is highly suitable. A few drawbacks aside it provides valuable insights for students and scholars alike.

    Avhandling som løfter frem noen viktige spørsmål om idrettens rolle i samfunnet

    Den 7 februari 2020 försvarade Daniel Bjärsholm sin avhandling Idrott som medel – inte som mål: Förutsättningar för socialt entreprenörskap inom idrotten (Malmö universitet).

    Disputation | Idrott som medel – inte som mål: Förutsättningar för socialt entreprenörskap inom idrott av Daniel Bjärsholm, Malmö universitet, den 7 februari 2020

    The aim of this compilation thesis is to examine and analyze the preconditions for conducting social entrepreneurship in sport. In sum, the thesis contributes with empirical examples of social entrepreneurial sport organisations; a theoretical understanding of the “social” dimension of social entrepreneurship in sport; an ethical discussion on the role of researchers; and a starting point when discussing the Swedish government support for sport.

    Important study, groundbreaking results, problematic conclusions

    Anne Tjønndal reviews an edited volume from Palgrave Macmillan, Sport and Social Entrepreneurship in Sweden by Tomas Peterson & Katarina Schenker. Our reviewer hails the study as an important contribution to the scholarly field of social innovation and entrepreneurship in sport, but she has serious misgivings about some of the concluding theses.

    An interesting and much-needed book that could have done better

    Innovation and entrepreneurship, social or not, in a sports setting is a new field within sport studies. Vanessa Ratten & João J. Ferreira’s edited volume Sport Entrepreneurship and Innovation (Routledge 2017) can possibly claim the spot of key text in this unplowed field, but according to our reviewer, Daniel Bjärsholm, its shortcomings may well prevent that.
