Call for Papers | Sport / Spectacle: Performing, Labouring, Circulating Bodies Across Sport, Theatre, Dance, and Live Art | September 14–15, 2018, Kings College London. Call ends July...
At the centre of both sport and cultural performance are bodies. In the spectacles of professional or amateur sport, plays, musicals, dance, and opera, bodies are made to transcend their fleshly existence by the mise-en-scène and the audience contract. The (sport) spectacle transforms the embodied subject of the athlete/actor into a representation of human potential and possibility.
Rob Lake, Stephen Wagg and Carol Osborne are pleased to announce that contractual arrangements have been made with Routledge for publication of The Routledge Handbook of Tennis: History, Culture and Politics. Due to be released in mid/late 2017, it is an edited collection aimed at providing a comprehensive critical study of tennis, its history, culture and politics.
