Online release of H-Sport's Journal Watch for the First Quarter of 2014

Dear H-Sport followers,

It is our pleasure to announce the online release of H-Sport's newest "Journal Watch" (JW 2014/1). It lists most sport-related articles and book reviews published in scholarly journals and periodicals for the first quarter of 2014. The languages covered are French, English, and German.

We would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank Hugo Ceron-Anaya who has been the JW contributor for Portuguese and Spanish. Hugo has stepped down from his position so H-Sport is looking for a new contributor for Portuguese and Spanish publications. Anyone interested in this position should get in touch wit the editors at editorial-sport@mail.h-net.msu.edu.
