Call for Papers | “Sports Organizations and Organizing Sports: Critical Reflections” | World Congress of Sociology of Sport, June 5–8, 2018, Lausanne. Call ends 2017-12-01
This conference will address how the social sciences and sports organizations influence each other. This will be achieved by exploring two main aspects of this relationship.

Call for Abstracts | “Publicly Engaged Sociology of Sport” | North American Society of the Sociology of Sport Annual Conference, November 2–5, 2016, Tampa Bay, Florida
Inspired by recent momentous cultural events, the conference theme questions and considers the role of sport sociology and sport sociologists in public engagement.
