Associate Professor Robert E Rinehart
Qualifications: PhD, University of Illinois; MS, University of Arizona; MA, California State University, Sacramento; BA, California State University, Sacramento
I moved to Aotearoa ten years ago. I have extensive background in swimming--both as an athlete and as a coach in the United States. I coached nine All Americans during my 23 year career. I hold two masters degrees: one in creative writing (English), and another in sport psychology. I have been teaching/coaching in higher education since the mid-1970s (true, but astonishing!).
I have served as President of the North American Sociology of Sport Society and the international Association for Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines.
My research interests include action/extreme/alternative sport studies, humanistic aspects of contemporary sport; qualitative inquiry (especially ethnographic practices).
