The Sports category welcomes a broad range of scholarship that is well researched and contains sports-related themes. Scholarship could relate to routines and procedures in sports, the sociology of sports, representational issues in sports, commercialism in sports, sports history, media and sports, and/or sports performance issues. Previously unexamined alternative topics may also be offered. Presentations should offer scholarly rigor, yet be understandable not only to sports scholars, but also to generalists who may have an interest in sports. Proposals should offer a short abstract, a one to three page description of your goals/methods, and a brief bibliography.
