    Livestreamad disputation | Physical contact in physical education – New perspectives and future directions av Annica Caldeborg | Örebro universitet, 2021-06-11

    Denna avhandling tar sin utgångspunkt inom forskningsområdet intergenerationell beröring i pedagogiska miljöer.

Resultaten presenteras i fyra studier och erbjuder olika perspektiv på fysisk kontakt i idrottsämnet: studenternas perspektiv, studentperspektiv relaterade till heteronormativitet, invandrarstudenters perspektiv och ett forskningsfältperspektiv.

    Call for Papers | “Sport and its transformations – from marginal to global cultural practice”. Online International Conference on Sport History, University of Bucharest, June 10–12, 2021. Call ends...

    Sport has changed considerably over time, and capturing its transformations has always been a challenge for historical research. For this reason, in order to better understand the impact of sport on the dynamics of our society, we invite you to explore the sport scene. This conference will examine the people’s relationship with sport from Antiquity to the present day and will discuss how the metamorphosis of sport is determined by the historical period, region, gender, class, ethnicity, etc.

    Call for Papers | Frontiers Research Topic: “Sport and Community”. Call ends May 31, 2021

    We welcome submissions employing a range of disciplinary, methodological, and theoretical approaches. We define sport broadly and would welcome work in competitive, recreational, leisure and physical activity contexts, addressing the relationship between sport and community. That is, work should engage in some way beyond individuals and explore ideas of community, authenticity, relationships, context, place, collectivity, inclusion, belonging, social justice, or a common good.

    Livestreamad disputation | Moving thresholds: Body narratives within the vicinity of gym and fitness culture av Greta Bladh, Umeå universitet, den 4 december 2020

    Studien tar sin början på ett gym, vilket har inskrivet i dess stadgar att verksamheten ska präglas av ett normkritiskt arbetssätt. Detta gym kan således ses som en plats där genuskodade normer, vilka i avhandlingen diskuteras i termer av trösklar, bearbetas på olika sätt med avsikt att skapa ett inkluderande klimat. Avhandlingen bygger på kvalitativa metoder såsom deltagande observationer, semi-strukturerade intervjuer, samt kollektiva minnesövningar.

    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.

    Det här är en avhandling om glitchande idrottare. Om glitch i relation till dominerande berättelser inom idrottsforskning. Och om ett glitchande sätt att vetenskapa. Avhandlingen består av fyra artiklar och en inledande ramberättelse - kappan. En knallrosarosa läderkappa med krånglande dragkedja, glittriga silvernitar och sömmar som spruckit och spricker. Här och var väller lager på lager av ljusrosa tyllfoder fram.

    This volume defines strength sports as activities in which the competition outcomes depend exclusively on the individual capacity to move weight.
