Sport in the Global South: BRICS

Saturday, 21 July 2018: 12:30-14:20
RC27 Sociology of Sport (host committee)

Language: English

Modern sport is intricately linked to globalization.  While globalization has enabled sport’s transformation into a transnational phenomenon, such changes have been founded on variable regional/local responses: passive, purposeful and resistant.  This session has a broad thematic focus on social issues relating to sport and globalization, including aspects of power, violence and justice.  It also welcomes papers from diverse theoretical backgrounds addressing transformations in the technologies, politics, cultures and social networks surrounding sport.  

We encourage all participants to take up RC27 membership to benefit from priority in abstract selection, as well as networking opportunities through the International Sociology of Sport Association (ISSA) eBulletin and annual conferences.
