Sport in Society, Volume 23, 2020, Issue 1 | Sports Geography: New Approaches, Perspectives and Directions
The considerable growth of interest in commerce, media and politics and their relationship to sport in international academia has resulted in academics in various disciplines writing about sport. Sport in Society is a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary forum for academics to discuss the growing relationship of sport to significant areas of modern life.
In their anthology Re-thinking Leisure in a Digital Age (Routledge), editors Michael Silk, Brad Millington, Emma Rich and Anthony Bush set themselves the task of providing critical engagement with digital technologies in a sport and leisure context. Anne Tjønndal has read the book for idrottsforum.org, and she contends that the individual contributions as well as the book as a whole are far-sighted and provide vital clues for a positive understanding of the brave new digital world.
