Days of paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters, and colloquia
Delegates from all over the world who attended the Seventh International Conference on Sport & Society.
The effects of human activity on the natural environment are increasingly coming into focus in the development of critical perspectives on our social futures. How does this socio-ecological tension prompt critical perspectives on human movement, physical activity, and sports? What are the implications arising from sports as modes of human action? What are the effects of the objects that sports use—the equipment, fields, stadiums, events, and related material support systems? What can nature-based sports teach us about the relationship of human activity to the natural environment? What are the prospects for environmental agendas associated with sporting activity, where leisure and play might teach us about modes of action sensitive to our future socio-ecological needs?
The Seventh International Conference on Sport & Society featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Graduate Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for graduate students at this stage in their academic careers. The 2016 Graduate Scholar Awardees are listed below.
