Var det britiske sportsførestillingar, eller kunsttradisjonen alt som var etablert i landet? Kva trugsmål såg bladredaktørane vel så mykje i sirkuset som i proff-tilveret?

Mer presist undersøker den former for organisering på idrettsarrangement på mikronivå med en kritisk tilnærming.
Public defence of doctoral thesis | Physical activity, physical fitness and academic performance among adolescents: Intervention effects from the School in Motion study – a cluster randomized controlled trial...
Emerging evidence suggests a favourable relationship between physical activity, aerobic fitness and academic performance. Recent data shows that physical activity levels decrease through adolescence. Accordingly, there is a need to develop interventions that can effectively change behaviour, leading to increased physical activity, physical fitness and academic performance among adolescents.

Public defence of doctoral thesis | Training load and health problems in football – More complex than we first thought? | Torstein Dalen-Lorentsen, Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, December...
Sudden increase in training load has been linked to increased risk of injuries and illnesses (health problems). In the past years, researchers have claimed that easy-to-use calculations can precisely estimate how much training load can increase without increasing the risk of health problems. In his PhD-project, Torstein Dalen-Lorentsen found that it’s not possible to assess risk of health problems based on training load, and that the studies claiming this has substantial methodological weaknesses.
