This blog is edited by Ornella Nzindukiyimana, an Assistant professor of sport history and sociology at St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia.
Blog entries primarily from the students in the Sport Sociology HKIN264 course, an undergraduate course that explores sport in society. While not providing in-depth analyses, the entries are designed to illustrate the issues that are raised by the sport industry and sport spaces in North American societies and beyond. The blog is meant to demonstrate, share, and stir up a conversation about sport as more than an apolitical and neutral arena of social life, and to highlight it’s position as an institution shaping and shaped by societies within which it is embedded. A link is also is made to at least one scholarly article.
