Public lecture on sport and the sociological imagination

This event has already taken place.

Wednesday 10 February 2016

The sociology of sport, in the Australian context, cuts across the various areas of education, health, policy, multiculturalism and science.

This free public event on ‘Sport and the sociological imagination’ will feature a panel of four distinguished speakers and aims to take the sociology of sport to the community, as well as to academics and students.

Key questions that will be discussed include:

  • What will be the key areas and issues for the sociology of sport in the next decade?
  • What insights and solutions will the sociology of sport provide?
  • How does the sociology of sport facilitate critical inquiry, social justice and equity?

Each panellist will have 15 minutes to discuss their imagination for the sociology of sport in the future. This will be followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience.

This event is a TASA Sponsored Event, hosted by the Sport Thematic Group. It has been organised by Dr Brent McDonald, Senior Lecturer in Sociology of Sport & Physical Activity and Associate Professor Ramón Spaaij, both in the College of Sport & Exercise Science, Victoria University.
