BSA Sport Study Group. Teaching & Research Workshop : Invitation to host in 2020

Following previous popular and successful teaching and research workshops, the BSA Sport Study Group is looking to host a one-day event in 2020. The focus will be on how global challenges are impacting our scholarship and teaching. This event will be an opportunity for new, established, postdoctoral and postgraduate sociology of sport scholars and students from across the UK to meet and share ideas.

We are inviting members of the group to host and lead the organization of this event (with BSA administration support).

The proposed structure of this one-day event is in two parts. First, to invite one (or two) keynote speakers to discuss key global issues (such as climate change) and our own scholarly responsibilities, and/or as scholars working in/through the neo-liberal contexts of sport and academia.

The second part of the day would focus on issues arising from the keynote talk(s), particularly in terms of their influence on teaching, and for one (or two) additional speakers to share examples of teaching materials, resources and assessment activities (which could be circulated more widely on the BSA Sport Study Group website).

Ideally the event would take place sometime in May/June 2020.

Expressions of interest can be informally discussed with: Dr Jon Dart and/or Dr Jim Lusted (as well as the BSA study group co-chairs Dr Mark Doidge and Dr Aarti Ratna).

Please submit your proposals including the following detail: Outline of event focus, draft programme schedule, ideas for keynote(s), and suggested invited speaker(s) – a one-page outline should be enough. Please submit this to Dr Jon Dart by 24 January 2020.

See below for details of previous fees charged for these events. These are negotiable, but preferably lower to encourage attendance. The host organisation would be expected to cover the cost of facilities and, if possible, contribute to refreshments (e.g. tea/coffee/biscuits) and lunch to keep registration costs low.
