2020 Global Sport Research Conference
The 2020 Global Sport Research Conference (ReCon) was a virtual gathering of researchers worldwide held to listen, present and connect on current work and findings, on July 22, 2020.
The theme was ‘exploring edgework and risk taking in sport’ with presentations from Arizona State University’s Global Sport Institute researchers and University of Brighton Sport and Leisure Cultures research group on areas within sport and social sciences.
The flow of the presentations purposely guides the viewer through to examine edgework and risk taking as it pertains to race, gender, identity, public space and property, community, and violence.
