MEETING: Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics (COIA) Tenth Anniversary National Meeting

This is to announce the Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics (COIA) Tenth Anniversary National Meeting, at the University of South Florida, Tampa.  February 1-3, 2013.
We have titled the meeting: “Expanding the Role of Faculty in the Governance of Intercollegiate Athletics at Both the National and Campus Levels”.
Representatives of COIA member institutions and others concerned about the future of intercollegiate athletics are invited to attend.  Click for details and registration information.
Please note: The focus of the meeting will be a series of work sessions in which attendees will help to draft recommendations to the NCAA regarding what can be done to expand faculty participation in the governance of intercollegiate athletics at the national level and to develop a “tool kit” that universities can use to improve oversight of athletics – especially on academic matters – at the campus level.  The NCAA is collaborating in the project, and Kevin Lennon (NCAA Vice President of Academic and Membership Affairs), Diane Dickman (Managing Director of Academic and Membership Affairs) and Jenn Fraser (Director of Academic and Membership Affairs) are confirmed participants, and others are expected to be announced soon.  Representatives of partner organizations, such as Faculty Athletics Representatives Association, Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, Drake Group, are also expected to participate.
Given the nature of what we will do at the meeting, it is important that a representative(s) from each of our member, and other interested, institutions be there to provide input and perspective.
Other topics, speakers, and highlights of the meeting:
·         COIA at Ten Years:  Looking Back and Forward
·         Legal issues in intercollegiate athletics
·         Wally Renfro (NCAA Vice President and Chief Policy Advisor)
·         Update on NCAA presidential reforms
·         Judy Genshaft (USF President and immediate past chair of NCAA D1 Board)
·         Data sharing and collaborative research with the NCAA
·         Presentations by major media figures and partner organizations
A detailed agenda will be posted on the COIA website as soon as it is available.

CFP: European Sport Management Quarterly 2015 Special Issue

ESMQ 2015 Special Issue (15.1):
(and for the pre-publication Workshop at the EASM 2013 conference)

The staging of sport events directly impacts the quality of life of people living in the host communities. Sport events are temporal and can trigger a variety of short- or long-term, positive or negative impacts, which lead to positive or negative outcomes, and if sustained, these outcomes become legacies. Most of the research thus far has focused on economic and tourism impacts of mega-events. It is unclear how or whether small and medium sized events actually affect the overall wellbeing of people living in the local community, especially from a nonmonetary perspective such as social life, urban regeneration, sport participation, environmental stewardship, or infrastructure. Are there features that make non-mega-events different from
mega-events with regard to their effect on local communities?  If so, is the difference due to the inherent features of the types of events or the characteristics of the smaller towns and cities in which they are usually hosted, or a combination of both?  What are the underlying processes that make non-mega events uniquely different from mega events for local citizens?
This special issue will bring work together that analyzes tangible and intangible impacts as well as the strategic choices that host communities make when hosting non-mega events, including the outcomes of those choices. Identifying and extending our understanding of impacts and strategic outcomes will have practical value for sport event management and strategy, and will advance our understanding of the social, economic, and environmental consequences of events.  While there are no universal definitions of different types of events, non-mega-events are generally smaller in size, scale, scope and reach than their mega counterparts (e.g., the Olympic Games, the World Cup, the Euro Cup, the Commonwealth games). However, like mega events, they are one-off, discontinuous and out of the ordinary.
Authors are invited to submit articles that contribute to our understanding of the nature, management and implications of non-mega events. We invite both conceptual and empirical papers related to the topic, from a range of perspectives and impacts, especially non-monetary (e.g., social life, sport participation, urban regeneration, local infrastructure, environmental stewardship…). Papers are welcome to consider spectator sport events, participant sport events, or both.

Invitation to participate in the EASM 2013 Special Issue Workshop
Interested contributors are invited to submit a standard two-page abstract through the abstract submission system of the 21st EASM 2013 Conference (Istanbul, Turkey, 11-15 September 2013; for more information see conference website when this is launched). Invited contributors are expected to submit a full paper to Marijke Taks ( before the conference by August 15, 2013. All full papers will be distributed among the workshop participants prior to the conference to stimulate conversation and discussion. Papers presented at the conference may be invited to be submitted for consideration for the 2015 ESMQ Special Issue, though other contributions will not be excluded.

Invitation for the ESMQ 2015 Special issue (15.1)
Submission of manuscripts is not limited to those participating in the workshop, but open to everyone interested in the topic.  Manuscripts should follow the general submission guidelines of the European Sport Management Quarterly. Papers should be submitted in electronic format to no later than November 30, 2013.

CFP: Racism and sports

Racism and Sports - Two-Volume Set, Praeger Publishers
Call for Papers

Editor: L. L. Martin

Contributors are solicited for a two-volume set on racism and sports, published by Praeger Publishers. Topic areas are listed below. If interested in submitting a manuscript under any of the topic areas, please contact: Editor: Lori Latrice Martin, African-American Studies Department, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, 445 West 59th Street, Room 9.63.08 NB, New York, New York 10019,, 212-237-8758. Manuscripts are 7,000 – 10,000 words. Manuscript due date is April 1, 2013.

Volume 1: Professional Sports
Part I.                   Sports and Racial Ideologies
Part II.                  Ballin’:  Racism and the National Basketball Association
Part III.                 Out of Bounds: Racism and the National Football League
Part IV.                Crying Foul: Racism and Major League Baseball
Part V.                  Sidelined: The Underrepresentation of Minorities in Sports

Volume 2:  Collegiate Sports 
Part I.                   Stereotyping and Racism:  The Black Male Athlete

Part III.                 She Got Game: Racism in Female Sports
Part IV.                Making the Grade: Racism and the Student-Athlete     
Part V.                  American Gladiators? Racism and Classism in College Athletics

Throughout the years, many debates have surrounded the topic of sports and race, debates that can be heard countrywide, from all sections of society: fans, players, coaches, commentators, educators, etc. Although these issues may seem to be limited to the playing field or the ring, the issues surrounding racism in sports impact people in every realm of life, as they are often representative of problems that have not been addressed in society as a whole. The challenges our country faces in addressing these issues are not going to go away anytime soon. The purpose of this unique multivolume set is to bring about an awareness of the issues, to aid readers in making the links between sports and society as a whole, and to encourage readers to think about solutions to the problems presented.

The essays in this multivolume set are meant to highlight controversies surrounding racism in sports and to present the policies and practices that both shape and perpetuate racial/ethnic disparities in sports in American today. Although there will be essays in the set that necessarily have to be of a historical nature, the focus of the set will be sports in America today.

CFP: Teaching Media on Sport, Media, and the Military

Teaching Media announces our second CFP for a new curation of teaching media resources. This issue's theme is Sport, Media, and the Military. Teaching Media is dedicated to promoting a collaborative exchange and dialogue between media studies scholars about contemporary approaches to teaching and critically engaging with multi-modal media.

Call for Proposals:
Since September 11, 2001 sports has become increasingly “complicit” in an increasing militarization of U.S. society and popular culture. Butterworth and Moskal (2009), for example, argue that American identity is constituted in and by a culture of militarism, “wherein Americans are implicated in a structural relationship between government, the military, and entertainment industries to the extent that it has become functionally impossible to live outside the rhetorical production of war” (p. 413). The “seizing” of the NFL, Major League Baseball, or NASCAR by the military can be witnessed frequently through the spreading of militaristic messages from sponsors, advertisers, and broadcasters who appear eager to use these sporting events to garner support for war, especially during a time of great unpopularity among the American public, and to reassert national identity through excessive displays of patriotism.

Teaching Media seeks teaching materials and models for understanding the relations between sports, media, and the military. Approaches to teaching the sports-media-military nexus can include, but are not limited to:

- the role of the media in mediating militaristic sporting events
- the intersection of gender, race, and sexuality and the military-sport-media nexus
- the links between the (in)visibility of women and queer subjects in mediated sports to the military as a traditionally hetero-patriarchal institution
- socio-political issues raised concerning the militarization and securitization of the 2012 London Olympics
- the entanglements between the neoliberal state and the military-sports-media nexus
- the effects of globalization on professional sports and the military

Teaching Media seeks 250-word summaries of teaching materials and models from a variety of pedagogical perspectives. The summary should include your general framework, a list of teaching materials and/or assignments in the unit, and a short explanation of why your approach is innovative.Please email all submissions, either as a word or PDF document, The Teaching Media editorial board will choose three summaries and ask the submitters to expand upon their abstract as part of a curated space on our site. Those not chosen are encouraged to submit their materials to our common space.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Sunday November 18, 2012

As we hope for continuing discussions and exchange as well as contributions to Teaching Media we encourage you to visit our website at

The School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen’s University would like to invite all those interested in socio-cultural studies of sport and exercise to our annual day conference, held in the memory of our colleague Dr. Donald Macintosh.

The conference programme will consist of several sessions of graduate student presentations, a catered lunch, and the annual Donald Macintosh Memorial Lecture, which will be given this year by Dr. Cathy van Ingen, associate professor in the Department of Kinesiology at Brock University. Dr. van Ingen’s research utilizes various theories and methods including those drawn from cultural studies, cultural geography, and poststructuralist and feminist theories of the body. She is one of the founders of the Shape Your Life boxing program for female and trans survivors of violence in Toronto. Dr. van Ingen has written the first biography of Hall of Fame boxer, “Dixie Kid” Aaron Brown, in Aycock & Scott’s (eds.) (2011) The First Black Boxing Champions: Essays on Fighters of the 1800s to the 1920s. She also has written articles on women’s boxing published in The Sociology of Sport Journal, Women in Sport and Physical Activity Journal, Feminist Media Studies and a forthcoming article in the Journal of Sport History called “Seeing What Frames Our Seeing”: Seeking Histories on Early Black Female Boxers.

Graduate students who would like to present their work at the conference should send 250-word abstracts or proposals for roundtable discussions or posters to Mary Louise Adams ( by December 7, 2012. We are looking for presentations of works-in-progress, as well as presentations of completed research.

In selecting papers for the conference, priority will be given to students who submit independent research and who are first time Macintosh presenters; second priority will be given to students who submit research as part of a faculty research team and who are first time Macintosh presenters; third priority will be given to returning Macintosh presenters. All applicants will be given the option to present their research in the form of a poster.

Kingston is accessible by VIA rail or bus. It is a two hour and 45 minute drive from downtown Toronto or downtown Montreal. It is a two-hour drive from Ottawa and a one-hour drive from Watertown, New York. Registration fees are $30 for faculty and $20 for students.

SEWSA Caucus Proposal Deadline: November 16, 2012**
The Southeastern Women's Studies Association supports caucuses for
groups that are under-represented within society or SEWSA as an
organization. Current caucuses include LGBTQ Caucus, People of Color
Caucus and Student Caucus.

**Those submitting caucus proposals will be notified soon after the
deadline so that they can also submit to the general CFP by November
30th, should they desire.

LGBTQ Caucus CFP: "The Queer South: Challenging Regionalisms"
solicits proposals that critically analyze some phenomenon related to
sexualized or gendered "otherness" that positions the South (or some
facet of the South) as "queer." These analyses may define "queer" in
terms of les-bi-gay/non-straight sexualities, non-normative genders,
or other non-normative sexual practices (not necessarily les-bi-gay),
or non- or anti-heteronormative practices, theories, and lives. The
call is open to broad interpretations of "the South," including the
global South, but the LGBTQ Caucus takes as its starting point how the
U.S. South is situated within a national landscape.

For more information and submission, contact LGBTQ Caucus Chair,
Jennifer Purvis

PoC Caucus CFP: "A Meeting at the Kitchen Table: POC Feminists
Envisioning the Future" calls on some of our People of Color feminist
foremothers to examine where we are as POC academics, cultural
workers, and artists and where we'd like to be. As we look at the
interracial POC dynamics that both propel and impede our
activism/scholarship/art we realize that we must look to ourselves for
answers as we struggle to keep our movements alive. We invite stories,
questions, experiments, practices, and ideas from POC to encourage an
intergenerational multi-racial conversation that supports the
articulation of collective movement toward the world we want.

For more information and submission, contact PoC Caucus Chair, Moya

Student Caucus CFP: "The Future of Feminism in a Post-Identity Era"
invites proposals that examine the relevance of identity categories
for contemporary academics and activists. Feminism, Queer Studies and
Critical Race Theory have explored the continued relevance of these
categories, with concern for preserving points of solidarity and
narratives of struggle, existence and belonging. How can feminist and
queer scholarship demonstrate the continued importance of these
categories? What kinds of work can we produce that will expand the
public's awareness of continuing discrimination and marginalization?

For more information and submission, contact student caucus
representative, Aretina Hamilton
