Martial Arts Studies is a peer reviewed online open access academic journal that aims to foster the most informed cross-disciplinary discourse on martial arts via the cross-fertilization of perspectives. As such, it encourages interdisciplinarity. The Forum Editor’s choice from the current issue: Krav Maga: History, Representation, and Globalization of a Self-Defense System from Israel by Jürgen Schaflechner (open access).
Sport in History, Volume 40, 2020, Issue 3: Masculinities in Martial Arts and Combat Sports – an Interdisciplinary Issue
Sport in History encourages the study of sport to illuminate broader historical issues and debates. Includes an extensive reviews section, an annual compendium of sports-related accessions to British archives and a 'Sport in Public History' section. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: THE BOXING GYM AS MASCULINE SPACE by David Scott.
Paul Bowman, Professor of Cultural Studies at the School of Journalism, Media and Culture, Cardiff University, has published profusely in the field of martial arts studies over the years. His latest effort is Deconstructing Martial Arts (Cardiff University Press), which we asked Anne Tjønndal to review for idrottsforum.org. She finds Bowman’s approach to his subject matter refreshing, albeit not easily accessible nor, in terms of methodology, fully convincing.
