THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SPORT AND SOCIETY
Murray Edwards College
Cambridge University, UK
23 – 25 July 2012
We are excited to be holding the Third International on Sport and Society at the Cambridge University, one of the world’s oldest and most renowned universities. The conference commences just days before the start of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Participants can experience all of the excitement and anticipation of one of sports greatest events.
The International Conference on Sport and Society and its companion International Journal of Sport and Society provide a forum for wide-ranging and interdisciplinary examination of sport, including: the history, sociology and psychology of sport; sports medicine and health; physical and health education; and sports administration and management. This year’s conference will also offer a special stream on Disability in Sport.
In addition to an impressive line-up of international plenary speakers, the conference will include paper presentations, workshops, and colloquia submitted by practitioners, teachers and researchers. Please refer to the Call-for-Papers for proposal submission guidelines and descriptions of sessions. Presenters may also choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of Sport and Society. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available.
