Projects per year
The Sport and Leisure Cultures Research and Enterprise Group provides an open, interdisciplinary, cross-School environment for critically engaged scholars who work with a range of national and international partners. We work with a range of governing bodies, governmental departments, and regional and international non-governmental organizations around the world.
The group develops, enacts, and facilitates positive change using a critically proactive stance. Our ethos is that it is insufficient to simply describe phenomena, our activities must strive to transform some aspect of the phenomenon being studied. Thus, our work is characterized by a critical engagement with and social theories about sport and leisure.
Our current areas of focus include:
- the human body in its: (1) embodied, material form; (2) racial, ethnic and other marginalized identities, and; (3) movements, mobilities, and migrations
- governance and policy
- Sport for Development and Peace
- mega-events and spectacle
- politics of football fandom
- School of Sport and Service Management - Reader
- Sport and Leisure Cultures Research and Enterprise Group - Leader of REG
- Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories - Steering committee
