This unit will examine the relationship between sport and society, particularly the formation and reproduction of social norms and groupings. Analysing society from modernist and post-structuralist perspectives, students will use social theories of discourse, identity formation and power relations to explore the role of sport in the development and reproduction of gender, sexual, class, and racial and national groups. Topics discussed include sport as a vehicle of social empowerment or marginalisation, sport as colonialism, and sport as consumption and popular entertainment.
