Andrew C. Billings, Lawrence A, Wenner & Marie Hardin’s edited collection American Sport in the Shadow of a Pandemic: Communicative Insights (Peter Lang Publishing) focuses on how communication practices, structures, and principles change when a key locus – sport – has much of its cultural and political-economic power disrupted. Britt-Marie Ringfjord’s review offers an accessible presentation of all the contributions. She found the book to be instructive and interesting as well as entertaining.
The essays collected in Daniel A. Grano & Michael L. Butterworth’s Sport, Rhetoric and Political Struggle contextualize sport and political struggle, examine the mobilization of resistance in sporting contexts, and identify ongoing stigmas that present limitations in and around sport. Judging by Alan Bairner’s review, a more proper title for the book would have been “Sport, Rhetoric and Political Struggle in the US”. Still, our reviewer concludes that the book deserves a wide readership among scholars with an interest in sport and politics.
C&S is a cutting-edge peer-reviewed quarterly that publishes research to foster international scholarly understanding of the nexus of communication and sport that engages a broad intellectual community. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: “Yay, Another Lady Starting a Log!”: Women’s Fitness Doping and the Gendered Space of an Online Doping Forum by April Henning and Jesper Andreasson (open access).
