Sport in Society is a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary forum for academics to discuss the growing relationship of sport to significant areas of modern life. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: WHEN WOMEN ATHLETES TRANSGRESS: AN EXPLORATORY STUDY OF IMAGE REPAIR AND SOCIAL MEDIA RESPONSE by Rachel Allison, Ann Pegoraro, Evan Frederick & Ashleigh-Jane Thompson.
In their anthology Re-thinking Leisure in a Digital Age (Routledge), editors Michael Silk, Brad Millington, Emma Rich and Anthony Bush set themselves the task of providing critical engagement with digital technologies in a sport and leisure context. Anne Tjønndal has read the book for idrottsforum.org, and she contends that the individual contributions as well as the book as a whole are far-sighted and provide vital clues for a positive understanding of the brave new digital world.
