Call for Presentations
This conference, the third global conference on Sport held by IDN, aims to bring together scholars from a wide range of disciplines – sociology, sport development, cultural studies, philosophy, history, political studies, urban studies, management and marketing, geography, and psychology and sport science – who are interested in exploring sport’s social, political and economic places and spaces. We are interested in sport’s histories, sport in the here and now and sport’s futures. The project is for cheerleaders of sport, critics of sport, and all those in-between who would like to make a contribution to this inter-disciplinary approach to understanding sport.
We are interested in receiving all forms of research and presentations of theory on the following themes:
• Sport and social identity
Presentations, performances and papers will be accepted which deal with related areas and themes. The Steering Group particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed panel proposals.
In order to support and encourage interdisciplinarity engagement, it is our intention to create the possibility of starting dialogues between the parallel events running during this conference. Delegates are welcome to attend up to two sessions in each of the concurrent conferences. We also propose to produce cross-over sessions between these groups – and we welcome proposals which deal with the relationship between Sport and Bodily Transformations.
What to Send
a) author(s), b) affiliation as you would like it to appear in programme, c) email address, d) title of proposal, e) body of proposal, f) up to 10 keywords.
The conference is part of the making Sense Of: programme of research projects. It aims to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore various discussions which are innovative and exciting. All proposals accepted for and presented at the conference must be in English and will be eligible for publication in an ISBN eBook. Selected proposals may be developed for publication in a themed hard copy volume(s). All publications from the conference will require editors, to be chosen from interested delegates from the conference.
