CFP: The Third International Conference on Sport and Society

The 2012 Sport Conference will be held at the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK from 23-25 July 2012. The 2012 Sport and Society Conference will address a range of critically important issues and themes relating to Sport and Society. With such close proximity to the 2012 Olympics, it is our hope to have a strong connection between the conference and the London Olympics.
We invite prospective participants to submit a presentation proposal for one of the following parallel session options: a 30-minute paper; a 60-minute workshop; a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session; or a virtual session. We also encourage innovative presentation formats, such as roundtables, staged dialogues, screenings and performances. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for focused discussion of issues and Conference themes.

Participants may choose to submit written papers before or after the Conference for possible publication in the peer reviewed The International Journal of Sport and Society. Virtual participants also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the Journal. All registered Conference participants receive a complimentary online subscription to the Journal when registration is finalised. This subscription is valid until one year after the Conference end-date.

You may submit a proposal to the Conference Review Committee for an In-Person Presentation, or a virtual paper at the International Sport and Society. If your Conference proposal is accepted you may submit a written paper to The International Journal of Sport and Society.

All proposals, presentations and papers must be in English.
The deadline for the current round in the Call for Papers is 15 March 2012
