9781138192898: Making Sport History: Disciplines, identities and the historiography of sport (Routledge Research in Sports History)

The field of sport history is a relatively new research domain, situated at the intersection of a number of disciplines and sub-disciplines. This interdisciplinarity has created interesting avenues for growth and fresh thinking but also inherent problems of coherence and identity. Making Sport History examines the development of an academic community around sport history, exploring the roots of the discipline, its current boundaries, borders and challenges, and looking ahead at future prospects. Written by a team of world-leading sport historians, with commentaries from scholars working outside of the sport historical mainstream, the book considers key themes in the historiography of sport, including:

  • The relationship between history, sport studies and physical education
  • Comparative analysis of the role of historians in the writing of sport history
  • Modern and post-modern approaches to sport history
  • Race, gender and the sport historical establishment
  • The role of scholarly organisations, conferences and journals in discipline-building

Presenting new perspectives on what constitutes sport history and its core methodologies, the book helps explain why historians have become interested in sport, why they’ve chosen the topics they have, and how their work has influenced the wider world of history and been influenced by it. Making Sport History is essential reading for any advanced student, scholar or researcher with an interest in sport history, historiography, or the history and philosophy of the social sciences.

About the Author:

Pascal Delheye studied physical education, sport management and history. His doctoral research, for which he won the Young Investigators Award of the European College of Sport Science in 2003, focused on the academization of physical education. After postdoctoral research at the universities of Leuven and Berkeley, he became head of the Research Centre for the History of Sport and Kinesiology at KU Leuven in 2008. After an internal reorganization in 2012, he has broadened his focus to sport policy within the newly founded Policy in Sports and Physical Activity Research Group. He is also coordinator of the courses in sport management and dance.
