Call For Abstracts | “Sport Sociology and the Responsibility for Decolonial Praxis: Decolonizing Minds, Indigenizing Hearts” | North American Society of the Sociology of Sport Annual Conference, November 6–9, 2019, Virginia...
The theme “decolonizing sport sociology” focuses on the multiple contradictions we – individually and institutionally – confront in our research, teaching, and service. The contradictions mean that we all have a responsibility to challenge settler colonialism. The question is how do we continue to transform ourselves, institutions, and world? This isn’t simply a self-reflective exercise.

As early as the first Olympic Games, sport has moved to the harmonies of music. Across the globe, sport and music occupy the same space to set the tone of a sporting event, serve as a backdrop for a performance, support an athlete in their development and preparation, or facilitate the delivery of fitness training. Sport and music forge communities, imbue national pride, and promote cultural identities.

Sessions may reveal how sport and music challenge the social, economic, and political landscape that often illuminate inequities of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability, age, and so on.

Call for Session Proposals | The 2017 Annual Conference, North American Society for the Sociology of Sport | November 1–4. Windsor, Ontario (ends April 1)
In keeping with the conference theme, sessions may highlight various ways in which scholars are exploring the double meaning of sport-related matter (as both consequential and substantial) and the alliterative intersections that make it so (e.g. politics-physics, politics-performances, politics-pedagogies, physics-performances, physics-pedagogies, performances-pedagogies).
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. In the context of growing economic inequality, we see public money being siphoned into private stadiums within professional sport, corruption within international sporting organizations, and U.S. college coaches being the highest paid employees in state institutions within ‘amateur’ sport.
