Session Submission Type: Traditional (Closed) Panel

Abstract

While sport studies scholars have established sport as a key site of cultural meanings and social relations, fewer scholars have engaged these issues within technology and science studies frameworks. This panel invites papers broadly concerned with social and cultural inquiry into the intersection of science, technology, and sport. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: sport technologies and technologies of the active body; issues related to medicine, risk and sport; performance enhancement and bioethics; (dis)ability, gender, race, class, and sexuality, technology and sport; sporting labs and scientific practices; representations of science and sport; sport analytics, data visualization, and the quantified self; professional gaming and eSports; and, infrastructure, sustainability, and sport.
