    Call for Papers | “Why does sociology matter? The role of sport sociology in interdisciplinary research”. EASS & ISSA World Congress of Sociology of Sport | Tübingen, June...

    Over the last years, important sport sociological work has been noticed in other disciplines such as sports medicine or physical education, and has subsequently changed the ways how researchers in these fields approach their research problems. However, in many interdisciplinary research projects on specific phenomena in sport and physical activity, the added value of sociological reflections is still not fully recognized, and, as a consequence, sport sociology is often not part of larger interdisciplinary research efforts.

    In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and its intersectional impacts, as well as the recent intensification of activism and protest related to racialized and gendered injustices, the moment is ripe to revisit and reflect on the concept of intersectionality, including within the field of sociology of sport.
