    Call for Papers | Media, Sport and Ireland Symposium 2022 |The Moore Institute, NUI Galway, May 19, 2022. Call ends January 14, 2022

    Sport occupies a central position in Irish social and cultural life, yet a relatively marginal position within the academy. This symposium aims to bring together sports scholars from across the humanities and social sciences whose work is variously concerned with the contemporary and historical cultural significance of sport, and which deals with the interplay between sport, the media and cultural industries and the lived experience of sport as popular culture in Ireland and across the Irish diaspora.

    Call for Papers | ‘Women in Sport’ | University of Worcester, UK, November 2021. Call ends May 1, 2021

    The last decade has seen an upsurge in female participation in sport, with girls and women becoming more visible as participants at grassroots level and celebrated for their competitive achievements at elite level.  However, it is true to say that female equality in sport has not yet been achieved. It is also well known that girls and women have not always found it easy to pursue their sporting aspirations.

    Update | “Getting back on their feet … The Virtual Conference” | Women in Sport and Exercise Academic Network, September 7–8, 2020

    Women tend to be overlooked when it comes to research within sport and exercise. We, therefore, wish to virtually connect individuals from a range of disciplines to ensure that sport and exercise research has a focus on women, especially during COVID-19 and beyond. This conference will be a platform of networking opportunities to connect with others in sport and exercise to boost confidence, training and motivation through knowledge gained via others’ research and experience.

    This book will present an overview of the increasing shift within global, elite-level women’s sport to move towards professionalisation.  Each case study included in the collection will highlight the complex, multi-faceted and at times problematic nature of women’s involvement in professional sport.  The collection will pay attention to the intersectional nature of women’s varied experiences in professional spor.

    Call for Chapters | Strong A(s) F(eminist): Power in Strength Sports, edited volume. Call ends June 15, 2019

    This volume defines strength sports as activities in which the competition outcomes depend exclusively on the individual capacity to move weight. We are seeking submissions across disciplines and thus, from a variety of vantage points, this edited volume will map the ideological landscape of strength sports to understand its potential for insurgent gender practices and the importance for studying sport for feminist social change.
