We invite submissions of abstracts to the call for papers below to be held at the 2019 Institute of Australian Geographers Conference (Hobart, Tasmania, July  9 to 13).

Session organisers: Adele Pavlidis and Jora Broerse

(Sponsored by the Cultural Geography Study Group)

Sport in Australia is intimately tied up with notions of pride, nationhood, and masculinity. As a field of study, sport geography is a site of emerging theories and concepts, diverging and converging with urban, social, cultural, emotional, economic, land-use, health and other geographies. From change rooms, to board rooms, sporting fields to dance halls, enfleshed bodies to digital sites, sport happens somewhere. This session calls for papers that explore the spatiality of sport, broadly defined to include team sports, individual pursuits and active leisure. 

Abstracts are due 28th February via the following link (you will create an account and then go on to submit your abstract, choosing 'Sport Geographies' in the drop down box) https://cdesign.eventsair.com/2019-iag/abstracts

If you have any questions at all or comments, please do not hesitate to email either of us, Adele Pavlidis a.pavlidis@griffith.edu.au and Jora Broese jozefien.broerse@live.vu.edu.au

Please pass on to your networks. Looking forward to seeing you in July!
