Sport: Spaces, Places, Money and Politics


Sport: Spaces, Places, Money and Politics
The Sport Project: Probing the Boundaries: 5th Global Meeting

Call for Presentations 2016

Tuesday 13th September – Thursday 15th September 2016
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

Sport is a key space for controversies and issues over access, control, space and power. It is also a space for the construction of identity, belonging and community. Every year sports events are hosted and won by communities and nation-states. Every year people do sports or watch sports in spaces: sports grounds, fields, back streets and parks. Every year, there is political struggle over funding that goes to the development of sports spaces, whether it is global events such as the World Cup, or informal spaces such as walking and cycling routes in national parks.

A key focus for the fifth meeting of this evolving project will be the role of politics and money in sport. Sports events are hosted and won by communities, organisations and nation-states. Sporting events provide positive opportunities for athletes to succeed, fans to cheer and economies to prosper. Unfortunately they have negative outcomes such as doping, match-fixing disgraces, corruption in governance and mega-event host city selection processes sometimes rife with scandal.

The integrity of sport, sport-governing bodies, officials, athletes, media, and host cities are called into question on an almost daily basis, while at the same time we champion excellent performances and achievement of athletes and teams. Governing bodies investigate and promise reforms, such as IOC's Agenda 2020 and recent FIFA candidates' election rhetoric in the midst of rapidly rising costs of event hosting, especially mega-events. Under-girding these issues at times is their relationship to sporting spaces and sports geographies as well as the transformative potential of sport. A key question relates to the political economies of sports and mega-events: are they sources of corruption? Places for reform? Forces for good? And what kind of personal, social, community, national and international spaces do they create, encourage and develop?

We invite academics, researchers, activists, theorists, policy-makers, journalists and practitioners to critically discuss and present interdisciplinary approaches to these and related questions. We are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to space, place, money and politics in relation to sport at the intersections of academic disciplines and subject fields, and invite contributions from academics who approach their work on space, place and sport through an inter-disciplinary lens. We especially welcome voices from beyond the academic boundaries, news from those involved in sport or writing about sport. We also include in that invitation those active in campaigns: for better access to spaces, for more spaces, as well as those fighting to save non-sports spaces from the hands of those who might want to turn them into sports facilities for mega-events.

The aim of the 2016 conference is to develop an active network of academics, practitioners and campaigners with an interest in sports geographies. By sports geographies we mean the ways in which we might understand sport as something that creates spaces and places, as well as something that is shaped by spaces and places. An inter-disciplinary sports geography is one that uses the relationship between sport, place and space to tell a story about the meaning of sport, the history of sport and the socio-cultural importance of sport: for example, about the relationship between Le Tour de France, landscapes and French identity. Themes within the conference include:

- Understanding the social and political potential of sport spaces – can sports spaces be places where social divisions are broken down?
- Who owns and controls sports spaces?
- Exploring the fiscal dimensions of sporting spaces and sporting events
- How sport intersect other spaces – cultures, communities, societies and nation-states
- Geographies of sporting bodies – the growth and development of sports organisations
- The meaning and purpose of sport spaces – what do people use sports spaces for?
- Conflicts over sports spaces – who gets access

We invite abstracts that discuss things like the relationship between sports teams in the context of the local/global debate; stadium architecture (gentrification, class and gendered space within stadia); sport spaces and urban planning; virtual sports; sports clubs and their community outreach initiatives (or relationship to their communities generally); variations in sporting practices and game rules across space and place; sport-driven nationalism as a sense of space and place; and sport as uniting force that breaks down the barriers of space and place.

Further details are available from the conference web site:
http://www.inter-disciplinary.net/probing-the-boundaries/sport/research-streams/sport-probing-the-boundaries/call-for-papers/

Details about our reviewing process can be found here:
http://www.inter-disciplinary.net/probing-the-boundaries/sport/research-streams/sport-probing-the-boundaries/call-for-papers/details/

Call for Cross-Over Presentations
The Sport project will be meeting at the same time as a project on Cars In/Of Culture and another project on Roots and Legacies. We welcome submissions which cross the divide between both project areas. If you would like to be considered for a cross project session, please mark your submission "Crossover Submission".

What to Send
300 word abstracts, proposals and other forms of contribution should be submitted by Friday 20th May 2016.
All submissions be minimally double reviewed, under anonymous (blind) conditions, by a global panel drawn from members of the Project Team and the Advisory Board. In practice our procedures usually entail that by the time a proposal is accepted, it will have been triple and quadruple reviewed.

You will be notified of the panel's decision by Friday 27th May 2016.
If your submission is accepted for the conference, a full draft of your contribution should be submitted by Friday 5th August 2016.

Abstracts may be in Word, RTF or Notepad formats with the following information and in this order:

This event is an inclusive interdisciplinary research and publishing project. It aims to bring together people from different areas and interests to share ideas and explore various discussions which are innovative and exciting.

A number of eBooks and paperback books have been published or are in press as a result of the work of this project. An interdisciplinary sports journal is also launching later this year.

All papers accepted for and presented at the conference must be in English and will be eligible for publication in an ISBN eBook.

***2016 Conference Theme: "Education and Social Justice: Educating for Equality Within and Across Borders"

IAFOR promotes and facilitates new multifaceted approaches to one of the core issues of our time, namely globalisation and its many forms of growth and expansion. Awareness of how it cuts across the world of education, and its subsequent impact on societies, institutions and individuals, is a driving force in educational policies and practices across the globe. IAFOR's Conferences on Education have these issues at their core. The conferences present those taking part with three unique dimensions of experience, encouraging interdisciplinary discussion, facilitating heightened intercultural awareness and promoting international exchange. In short, IAFOR's Conferences on Education are about change, transformation and social justice. As IAFOR's previous education conferences have shown, education has the power to transform and change whilst it is also continuously transformed and changed. The theme of education for social justice continues into 2016 in the Asian, European, Middle Eastern and North American Conferences on Education.

Globalised education systems are becoming increasingly socially, ethnically and culturally diverse. However, education is often defined through discourses embedded in Western paradigms as globalised education systems become increasingly determined by dominant knowledge economies. Policies, practices and ideologies of education help define and determine ways in which social justice is perceived and acted out. What counts as 'education' and as 'knowledge' can appear incontestable but is in fact both contestable and partial. Discourses of learning and teaching regulate and normalise gendered and classed, racialised and ethnicised understandings of what learning is and who counts as a learner.

In many educational settings and contexts throughout the world, there remains an assumption that teachers are the possessors of knowledge which is to be imparted to students, and that this happens in neutral, impartial and objective ways. However, learning is about making meaning, and learners can experience the same teaching in very different ways. Students (as well as teachers) are part of complex social, cultural, political, ideological and personal circumstances, and current experiences of learning will depend in part on previous ones, as well as on age, gender, social class, culture, ethnicity, varying abilities and more.

IAFOR has five annual education conferences, exploring common themes in different ways to develop a shared research agenda which develops interdisciplinary discussion, heightens intercultural awareness and promotes international exchange.

We expect the 2016 conference themes to inspire a number of research avenues, and look forward to discussing your ideas, findings and synergies.

Sub-themes:

-Educating through borders of power
-Transcending boundaries of 'self' and 'other'
-Challenging and transcending learning spaces
-Education and the boundaries of communication
-Borderlands of being and becoming

We hope and expect the 2016 conference themes to inspire a number of research avenues, and look forward to discussing ideas, findings and synergies, in this International Academic Forum.

Streams for submission can be found on the Call for Papers page of the conference website. http://iafor.org/ace2016-call-for-papers/
