H-Sport enables scholars around the world who are engaged in the historical, socio-cultural, and philosophical study of sport, physical education, and physical activity to discuss research and teaching interests, conferences and symposia, current issues, sources of funding, publishing, new data and collections, and other areas of interest to scholars.
this summer I will be offering at the Florence Ethnographic Field School, for the first time, a summer program in qualitative research methods for credit, onsite in Florence, Italy. My own research and teaching includes a specific focus on sport, and so I would welcome students from any discipline with an interest in sport studies who are looking for an ethnographic field experience over the summer.

Stellenbosch University’s Department of Sport Science in partnership with the Stellenbosch University Museum and Sanlam Archives invites you to a South African Sport Historical Conference to be held from 8 to 11 October 2018 on the theme SPORT, STRENGTH AND SOCIETY. The study of physical culture (with an emphasis on health, strength and beauty) remains an obscure area of research in South Africa. It was through cultural and political efforts that Black South Africa had indirect representation at the 1948 Olympic Games in London.
