THE BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY IN SPORTS HISTORY CONFERENCE JUNE 2023
The Institute of Humanities, in partnership with the Institute of Sport, Nursing and Allied Health, are hosting a Business and Community in Sports History conference. The conference will be held at the University of Chichester's Bishop Otter Campus and will take place on Saturday the 17th of June 2023.
Our aim for this conference is to highlight how intrinsic the themes of business and community are to sport throughout its history, in both its professional and amateur forms. We understand the concepts of business and community in relation to sports and its history is vast. Therefore, we are delighted to include papers on such topics as:
· Sexuality and Gender in Sport Business and Community
Our Keynote speaker is Professor Jean Williams who has specialised in women's history, sport and literature, sportswear and motorsport. It is over 20 years since Jean's book 'A Game for Rough Girls' was published and Jean will provide us with an overview of the academic literature that has been produced on this topic in the intervening years.
We have strived to make this event an inclusive event in all respects. We welcome delegates from all under-represented backgrounds and we especially welcome PhD Students and Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to attend this conference.
Conference proceedings will take place between 10 am-5 pm on 17th June 2023 and refreshements will be provided through-out the day at Cloisters, University House.
