ESA Research Network 28 Society and Sport Midterm Conference Sport and crisis: bodies, practices, representations

Educational Sciences’ Department, “Alma Mater Studiorum” - University of Bologna, Bologna (Italy), 25-26 March 2021.

Argument

Recent crises, from the economic and migratory to the present covid-19 pandemic, have dramatically affected all areas of individual and collective life – and sport and physical activity are no exception.

Many aspects of the sportscape have been affected: sport-health practice, the use of sports as a means of social inclusion for immigrants, professional sports events, their media coverage, the place of sport and physical activity in the welfare system, the relationship between body and sports’ practice, sports and physical activity’s representations and so on. In summary, bodies, practices and representations.

The aim of this midterm conference is to bring scholars, researchers, educators, students, professionals and other groups interested in sports and physical activity to propose their works. The focus of this midterm conference lays in the challenges that sociology of sports and physical activity have to face to understand these new complex scenarios, the main issues we had to face, the successes, the criticalities and the lessons learned, the new horizons of our understandings of the social and cultural landscapes.

Beyond this main theme, the conference will also feature a wide range of sessions to give the opportunity to share and discuss the latest research experiences, including (but not limited to):

  • Sport, Migration and Forced Migration
  • Methodological and Empirical Challenges on Sports and Physical Activity
  • Sports and media: mass and new publics
  • Sport and Volunteering: Representations and Perspectives
