This unit introduces students to the sociological analysis of contemporary sport. It focuses on key trajectories in both traditional professionalised sports (e.g. basketball, football, cricket) and emerging lifestyle sports and pastimes (e.g. parkour, roller derby, gaming) in Australia and internationally. The unit draws on sociological theories and research on sports celebrities, sport audiences, sport media, sports administration, corruption, gambling, race, gender and globalisation to understand and explain these patterns.
