Call for Session Proposals | “Sport Soundtrack: Sport, Music, and Culture” | North American Society for the Sociology of Sport 2018 Conference, Oct. 31–Nov. 3, 2018, Vancouver, BC, Canada....
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. Session submissions may also demonstrate how the relationship between sport and music have influenced career industries such as media and film, event management, marketing & public relations, journalism, fashion, and beyond.
The conference invites submissions from a broad range of disciplines, and is particularly interested in new ways of researching ‘popular’ forms of communication and culture. In addition to papers from established and early career academics, we encourage proposals from postgraduate taught and research students.
The Journal of Sport History is published three times a year by the North American Society for Sport History (NASSH).
