Sport, Culture and Development: Trends and Issues

In this paper students will gain an introduction to sociological understandings of sport and movement cultures. They will develop new ways of critically thinking about the important role sport plays in contemporary society, including the economy, politics, tourism, the media, and our sense of identity, belonging and community. Students will be introduced to a range of sociological concepts - including history, sociology, social psychology, philosophy - from a sport development perspective, and learn how to apply these to local, national and international sporting contexts.
