González-Calvo, Gustavo; Varea, Valeria; Martínez-Álvarez, Lucio – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
The importance of the Physical Education (PE) teacher's body, particularly for teaching PE, has been highlighted in literature. PE teachers are expected to be clear role models to students through their acts, behaviours and bodies. However, their strong embodied subjectivities, particularly those related to their teaching practices, may be…

Flintoff, Anne; Dowling, Fiona – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
This paper explores physical educators' perspectives on race and racism as a first step towards disrupting whiteness and supporting the development of antiracist practice. With close links to sport, a practice centrally implicated in the creation and maintenance of racialised bodies and hierarchies, Physical Education (PE) offers an important…

Sperka, Leigh; Enright, Eimear – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
The progressively global, neoliberal, privatised, and digital education environment poses new methodological challenges for educational researchers, prompting a need to innovate. It has been suggested, however, that better commentary and reflection on methodological innovation in education is required. This paper considers the benefits and…

Stylianou, Michalis; Hogan, Anna; Enright, Eimear – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Youth sport policies are increasingly driven by health concerns and social issues, and focus on broad participation outcomes.

Barker, D. – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Research suggests that physical education (PE) in Western countries is not providing equitable experiences for non-white students. Responsibility for shortcomings has often been ascribed to white PE teachers. Scholars have claimed that teachers lack cultural competence and know little about how physical cultures or health are understood by the…

Lyngstad, Idar; Bjerke, Øyvind; Lagestad, Pål – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Previous research shows that understanding pupils' emotional affiliations with content in physical education (PE) is important. Findings point out the importance of the teacher signaling that the pupil is seen beyond the skill and knowledge aspects in class. However, the research literature does not offer very many detailed elaborations on the…

Purdy, Laura G.; Kohe, Geoffery Z.; Paulauskas, Rutenis – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Increased activity of multiple stakeholders (e.g. agents and owners) have created new challenges for some coaches working in professional sports clubs. The purpose of this project was to draw attention to the normative or accepted practices inherent in sport work, some of the day-to-day realities of some coaches working in this context, and to…

Simon, Mara; Azzarito, Laura – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
There is a significant lack of diversity within the teaching population nationwide that reflects historical, political, and institutional racialized inequality. In the context of physical education, ethnic minority teachers often report feeling 'different,' marginalized, and struggle to negotiate the dominant school culture they feel they do not…

Goodyear, Victoria A.; Kerner, Charlotte; Quennerstedt, Mikael – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
An international evidence-base demonstrates that healthy lifestyle digital technologies, like exergames, health-related mobile applications ('apps') and wearable health devices are being used more and more within educational settings. Despite this, there is a lack of in-depth empirical evidence on young people's experiences and uses of healthy…

Gray, Shirley; Treacy, Jennifer; Hall, Edward T. – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Many children and young people enjoy physical education (PE), yet many do not, and subsequently become disengaged from PE. Previous research that has explored pupil disengagement from PE has focused on what teachers should do to re-engage their pupils, or has encouraged dis-engaged pupils to create a curriculum that they perceive to be socially…

Mennesson, Christine; Bertrand, Julien; Court, Martine – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Many studies have stressed the key role played by competitive sports in the socialization of boys, particularly in middle-class families. This article looks at the minority group of boys from this social class who dislike competition and participate in few, if any, sports. We present case studies of six boys and their families, interviewed on…

Wiltshire, Gareth; Lee, Jessica; Williams, Oli – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Health inequalities continue to exist in advanced capitalist economies and so-called lifestyle behaviours (e.g. smoking, alcohol consumption, diet and physical (in)activity) play a role in their persistence. Interventionist responses to health inequalities are often posed in terms of either individual agency or social structure -- the former being…

Caldeborg, Annica; Maivorsdotter, Ninitha; Öhman, Marie – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
A growing anxiety around intergenerational touch in educational settings has both emerged and increased in recent years. Previous research reveals that Physical Education (PE) teachers have become more cautious in their approaches to students and they avoid physical contact or other behavior that could be regarded as suspicious [Fletcher, 2013.…

McMahon, Jenny; McGannon, Kerry R.; Zehntner, Chris – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
Given that research outside of sport and exercise has found that stigma may cause severe consequences (e.g. depression), it is important to explore the concept in regard to its connection to socio-cultural issues in the development and persistence of stigmatisation in sporting contexts. Analytic autoethnography and Goffman's theory of stigma was…

Cronin, C.; Whitehead, A. E.; Webster, S.; Huntley, T. – Sport, Education and Society, 2019
The analysis of sport performance in competitive contexts has become synonymous with the use of a range of software applications and hardware e.g. heart rate monitors and gps systems. With the prevalence of technology in mind, a small but growing corpus of literature has begun to consider this phenomenon and its influence upon the coaching…
