Sport, Bodies and Identity. Part I
This session welcomes papers that engage with research into sport, the body and identity. The body is a central vehicle from which to engage with the sociological significance of sport. As such research may examine the representation of bodies, or utilize the body as a methodological tool. Identity may be considered both individual and collective and draw on local, national, and transnational contexts. In particular papers that consider the variously contradictory, transformative, and reproductive ways sport intersects with identity are encouraged.
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.
