The Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education invites all faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students interested in socio-cultural studies of sport, exercise and the body to join us for a day of engaging discussions and dialogue.
This programme consists of several sessions of graduate student presentations and a keynote address by Dr. Brian Wilson, Associate Professor in the School of Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia, Dr. Wilson is the author of Fight, Flight, or Chill: Subcultures, Youth, and Rave into the Twenty-First Century (McGill-Queen's University Press, 2006) and articles on topics related to youth culture, sport, media, social inequality, social movements, and environmental issues. In his talk, tentatively titled ‘Sport and Ironic Activism,’ he will examine the often-complex and unintended results of attempts to incite positive social change in and around sport. In doing so, he will reflect on recent research he has conducted on 'sport for youth development' groups and sport-related corporate environmentalism.
This event is sponsored by the Faculty of Arts and Science, President’s Office, Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, School of Graduate Studies, and the Department of Sociology at the University of Lethbridge. We would also like to acknowledge the generous support of the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta and the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary.
