CfP: 4S Conference Panel 157 - Science, Technology, and Sport

Call for Papers 4S Conference 2021 Panel 157: Science, Technology, and Sport in Uncertain Times Jennifer Sterling; Gian Marco Campagnolo; Michiel Van Oudheusden

While sport studies scholars have established sport as a key site of cultural meanings and social relations, fewer scholars have engaged these issues within technology and science studies frameworks. This intersection of critical sport, science, and technology studies is key to understanding their current and future collisions and impacts, particularly in this moment of increasing technoscientific proliferation and practice. This panel invites papers broadly concerned with social and cultural inquiry into the intersection of science, technology, and sport. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: sport analytics, data science, algorithmic culture, and the quantified self; issues related to medicine, risk, and sport; performance enhancement and bioethics; sporting labs and technoscientific practices; elite, professional, and commercial sporting practices in relation to digital objectivity, player performance, injury prevention, player valuation, etc.; public understandings, consumption, and perceptions of sport science and sport technology; professional gaming and eSports; (new) media and other representations and circulations of science, technology and sport; science, technology and sport in relation to (dis)ability, gender, race, class, and sexuality; infrastructure, sustainability, and sport; and (digital) sporting futures. In addition, given the focus of the conference theme and the ongoing and heightened importance to reflect upon and interrogate current and future uncertainties, papers that center ethics or social justice research, draw upon Indigenous, anti-racist, feminist, queer, postcolonial and/or transnational scholarship, address oppressions and inequality, or situate relations between sport, science, and technology within the COVID-19 pandemic are especially welcome.
