Founded in 2010, the Sport & Society Research Network is brought together around a common interest in cultural, political, and economic relationships of sport to society. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries.

The Twelfth International Conference on Sport & Society calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus.

  • 2021 Special Focus—Sport and Society in Crisis
  • THEME 1: SPORTING CULTURES AND IDENTITIES
  • THEME 2: SPORT AND HEALTH
  • THEME 3: SPORTS EDUCATION
  • THEME 4: SPORTS MANAGEMENT AND COMMERCIALIZATION
To support the range of options, and flexibility needed in our current climate, we will offer a blended conference experience. You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change. The choice to participate virtually could also be a moral decision – for the planet, for security, or when the financial burden of travel is too great. We seek to foster spaces that align with principles of social justice and community development -- particularly in difficult times.
We also want to be ready for the possibility of place-based postponement due to COVID-19. If we are forced to postpone, the online engagement will still go ahead, and your registration will allow you to join the conference in person in a later year.
This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.
