About this title


The Cultural Turn in Sport Psychology brings to bear a series of rich insights from cultural studies that demand ways of opening the study of sport psychology to issues of transnational, gendered, and sexual identities; new methodologies; the nature of expertise and professional practice; and the basis of the science of sport psychology itself. In a global world with increasingly complex issues around issues of embodiment and the rapidly changing and expanding nature of the sporting enterprise, these broadened perspectives on sport psychology are both enlightening and valuable. -from the Foreword by Patricia Vertinsky, cultural historian, University of British Columbia.
