Call for Papers | The role of sport in social life: Women, sport, and social change, International Conference | Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences and University of Zagreb...
The 2012 London Olympics can be symbolically considered the beginning of a new era, as women were represented for the first time in all sports, as well as in all delegations of the participating countries. Nevertheless, there are still numerous inequalities in the economic position and media treatment of women in modern sports as compared to men. We invite scientists to submit summaries of presentations on a wide range of topics and issues in the relationship between gender and sport
Call for Papers | “Social Class, Sport, and Physical Activity”, Special Issue of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal | Call ends March 1, 2024
The purpose of this special issue is to explore the link among social class, sport, and physical activity. We seek quantitative, qualitative, and conceptual papers that investigate the ways that wealth, social class background, and power intersect to influence the opportunities people have to consume sport, their chances to be physically active, their experiences as sport consumers, and how they experience work in sport organizations.
Call for Book Chapters | Social Justice and the Modern Athlete: Exploring the Role of Athlete Activism in Social Change | Call ends April 30, 2021
The overarching focus of the book is to explore the role athletes have played in raising awareness of and advancing social justice issues. Authors are asked to consider various aspects of athlete involvement and influence, using a wide range of theoretical perspectives. Please note that although the book will provide an early historical chapter as the foundation for exploring athlete activism, it focuses on the past 30 years (1990-present), reaching beyond the Civil Rights era.
We welcome submissions employing a range of disciplinary, methodological, and theoretical approaches. We define sport broadly and would welcome work in competitive, recreational, leisure and physical activity contexts, addressing the relationship between sport and community. That is, work should engage in some way beyond individuals and explore ideas of community, authenticity, relationships, context, place, collectivity, inclusion, belonging, social justice, or a common good.
Call for Papers | Social Innovation in Sport, a new anthology edited by Anne Tjønndal, to be published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. Call ends September 20, 2018
Innovation plays a vital role in sports. Through new ideas, change and renewal, innovation shapes how a sport is played, viewed and organized. Despite its importance for the development of sport, sport innovation has not received the scholarly attention it deserves. As a research field, sport innovation is still new and relatively under-developed.
