Sociology of Sport Seminar at Sociology@Warwick

Last summer Sociology@Warwick hosted the website Sociological Imagination‘s first ever seminar. The topic was the Sociology of Sport and speakers included current Sociology@Warwick faculty, current PhD students and ex-PhD students.

The first speaker was Dr Karen Throsby, who we interviewed last year,  talking about her research on channel swimming.

Professor Wyn Grant, who we also interviewed on this topic some time ago, talks about the political economy of football. If you find this interesting you should definitely check out Wyn’s site Football Economy.

In this podcast from the SI Sociology of Sport seminar, PhD researcher Deborah Butler talks about her research on the Horse Racingindustry.

And in the final talk from the seminarDr Sam Farooq discusses religious masculinities in sport based on a fascinating ethnographic study she conducted.
