International Review for the Sociology of Sport

Special Issue
SPORT AND ALCOHOL

Extended Deadline: August 1, 2013
 
CALL FOR PAPERS
 
Guest Editor
Catherine Palmer
University of Tasmania
 
FOCUS AND TOPICS
There is little doubt that alcohol features in many aspects of contemporary sport. Promotional practices, alcohol use and misuse by players and spectators, and sports-based interventions in alcohol prevention and recovery programs (among other things), make sports-associated drinking a rich source of interest for sociologists, anthropologists, policy-makers and health professionals alike.  While a considerable body of research has explored the relationships between sport, alcohol and masculinity (and there is certainly more to be done), new relationships to sport and alcohol are emerging that can further advance understandings of the social meanings embedded in sport-related drinking, the range of social problems it contributes to and their implications for scholarship, policy and practice. It is timely then to re-examine sport-related drinking in ways that widen the empirical and theoretical base so as to better understand the diversity and complexity of drinking and drinkers in sport.  
 
The research questions, topics and problematics raised and addressed in this Special Issue should aim to extend and enhance knowledge and understandings in the sociology of sport and related disciplines.  Towards that goal, this special issue solicits papers that can contribute to new research agendas in the sport-alcohol nexus. Papers are invited on, but not limited to, the following themes:
•         drinking and masculinity
•         women, sport and drinking (as sportswomen, fans, audiences, or through other identities/relationships) 
•         non-drinkers in sport drinking cultures
•         media representations and promotional culture
•         methodological issues and innovations in exploring sport-related drinking 
•         theoretical contributions to exploring and re-defining sport-related drinking 
•         implications for policy and practice
•         prevention and /or rehabilitation
Papers that address these or other themes in varied cultural and /or geographical contexts are particularly encouraged.
