Full event details

Globalisation affects all of us. Sociologists aim to understand the processes involved in globalisation, and to assess the impact of these processes on contemporary life. One way of achieving this is by examining globalisation in particular contexts and this session will examine the globalisation of modern sport. Sport will be examined as a popular form of culture and a key element of everyday life for billions globally. The growth of the English Premier League (EPL), the hosting of mega events such as the Olympic Games, and our understanding of sport fandom will all be discussed in the session. Sport will be examined sociologically and the ways that it has been affected by globalisation will be analysed.
