Sports and Society: What’s Social about Sport?

9 March 2009 (All day)
Bramall Lane, Sheffield

ESRC funded Festival of Social Science Event at Sheffield United Football club 2009 to disseminate Sport Across Diaspora research and engage the wider community in the outcomes and impact of academic research. There was local coverage on BBC Radio Sheffield and presentations by David Goldblatt and Kath Woodward in a multimedia event. This has led to a special edition of the journal Soccer and Society, Sounds and Things, to be published in 2011. This special edition is also based on the archive research, James Wyllie's work at the sound archive and interviews with BBCWS sports producers.
