Call for Papers | “Why does sociology matter? The role of sport sociology in interdisciplinary research”. EASS & ISSA World Congress of Sociology of Sport | Tübingen, June...
Over the last years, important sport sociological work has been noticed in other disciplines such as sports medicine or physical education, and has subsequently changed the ways how researchers in these fields approach their research problems. However, in many interdisciplinary research projects on specific phenomena in sport and physical activity, the added value of sociological reflections is still not fully recognized, and, as a consequence, sport sociology is often not part of larger interdisciplinary research efforts.
Call for Papers | “Inclusivity, Togetherness, Community, and the Sociology of Sport in a Post(?)-Covid World”, the 2021 Annual Conference for the North American Society for the Sociology of...
For this year’s NASSS conference – as we attempt to come together in-person in the spirit of inclusivity, togetherness and community – we welcome papers on any aspect of sport and physical culture as observed through a sociological lens. We would be particularly interested to receive submissions that explore sport and physical culture related to ideas around community, reconciliation, partnerships, relationships, equity, social inclusion, diversity, participation, and the indelible human spirit.
Call for Papers | International Sociology of Sport Association (ISSA) Virtual World Congress | November 15–19 2021. Call ends August 31, 2021
The theme of this congress is driven by several questions relating to the local and global production of knowledge in the sociology of sport, namely (1) What impact does our work have on a process of scientific circulation on a world scale? (2) What are the characteristics in our production of knowledge? (3) What can a Latin American country offer? These questions pushes the idea of the title, "Local and Global Challenges for Social Studies Of Sport in the 21st Century", as a challenge and invitation.
Call for Papers | “Sport and Society in Crisis” – Twelfth International Conference on Sport & Society | University of Granada, Spain, June 24–25 2021. Call ends May 24,...
To support the range of options, and flexibility needed in our current climate, we will offer a blended conference experience. You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change. The choice to participate virtually could also be a moral decision – for the planet, for security, or when the financial burden of travel is too great.
Call for Papers | “Sport and crisis: bodies, practices, representations”, ESA Research Network 28 Society and Sport Midterm Hybrid Conference | University of Teramo, 25-26 March 2021. Call ends...
The aim of this midterm conference is to bring scholars, researchers, educators, students, professionals, and other groups interested in sports and physical activity to propose their works. The focus lays in the challenges that sociology of sports and physical activity have to face to understand the new complex scenarios, the main issues we have to face, the successes, the criticalities and the lessons learned, the new horizons of our understandings of the social and cultural landscapes.
Call for Participation | ISSA Zoom panel, October 8/9, 2020: The Consequences of Covid-19 for Women’s Sport
The aim of this virtual panel is to discuss the potential impacts of the coronavirus crisis on women's sport. When the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic, the majority of sports leagues around the world were cancelled, suspended or postponed. While men’s leagues and championships are now subsequently able to return, the situation appears to be proceeding more slowly for women.
Call for Papers | Sport: Business or Lifestyle? The Impact and Trajectory of Modern Athletics | Online International Conference, October 3, 2020. Call ends September 18, 2020
Particularly the last decades, sport has become one of the most powerful industries internationally. Not only is it a lucrative field that creates athlete-tycoons but it also generates idols for the younger generations; is that useful or not? We wish to explore how sport has affected literature, arts and culture; understand its impact on economy and politics; and delve into the psychology, identity and behavior of people as these relate to sport.

The symposium theme, “Power at Play,” aims to examine ways sport acts as a catalyst of personal and community empowerment, while simultaneously reinforcing societal power structures. Our purpose is to bring together emerging and established researchers and professionals in an online, open-access forum. Here, participants can freely engage in active conversation and debate surrounding significant issues affecting the past, present, and future of sport in society.
Call for Papers | Social Actors of Sport Reality: Issues, Questions, Research Perspectives. Scientific Conference | Józef Piłsudski University of Physical Education in Warsaw, November 19–20, 2020. Call ends...
The dynamic of the sports world depends on, among others things, social actors’ (individual, collective, institutional) activities. We welcome abstracts concerned with the main conference theme, such as the functioning of coaches, referees, officials, sports journalists, activists, sports consumers (and other social actors in sport) on local, national and international levels. We look for a broad range of theoretical perspectives on sport and for sharing discussions on relevant issues.
