    Call for Book Chapter Proposals | 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. 

    Call for Papers | “Risk, Socio-materiality, and Inequality in Sport, Exercise, and Health” | Special Issue of Qualitative Research in Sport, Exercise and Health. Call ends August 31, 2021

The goal of this thematic issue is to move beyond a risk dualism whereby the ‘social’ is the domain of socio-cultural scholars and the ‘material’ the realm of scientists.

    Call for Papers | “Diversity and Inclusion in Sport Management Education”, Special Issue of Sport Management Education Journal. Call ends December 1, 2020

    Sport scholars have consistently advocated for more diverse and inclusive sport organizations, but identity-related inequities and injustices continue to prevail in sport organizations and sport management classrooms as well.

How is sport an “instrument” for peace? How does sport contribute to development?

    This edited collection aims to provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary overview of athlete activism. While athletes as ‘activists’ – broadly defined – is not necessarily a new area of study, it has commanded a significant range of both scholarly and media attention in recent years. High-profile figures from across elite sport have lent their voices in an attempt to influence a variety of social, political, ethical and/or environmental issues.
