New Website and CFP

If you haven't yet seen the new website for the AEJMC sports interest group, please check it out. Division chair Scott Reinardy says most of the credit goes to Marie Hardin and Melanie Formentin at Penn State for their work on creating the site. When you pay your AEJMC dues this summer (or whenever) don't forget to include an extra $10 for membership in the sports interest group.

And Younghan Cho from South Korea is soliciting papers for a special issue of Sociology of Sport Journal: Glocalization of Sports in Asia. This call for papers aims to general a special issue in which the concept of glocalization (Robertson, 1995) is used to explore the history, development and current state of Asian sports culture. The editors seek contemporary and historical examinations of sport glocalization in Asia from the late 19th century to the present, including the replacement of traditional sports, innovations of particular established traditions tied to sports and the invention of modern sports cultures.

The deadline for submission is September 30, 2011. Online submissions should be sent here; interested authors can get more information related to the call here. If you have further questions, contact Dr. Cho at or Dr. Charles Leary,
