Sport, History, and Heritage - Studies in Public Representation (Hardcover, New): Jeffrey Hill, Kevin Moore, Jason Wood Sport, History, and Heritage - Studies in Public Representation (Hardcover, New)
Jeffrey Hill, Kevin Moore, Jason Wood; Contributions by Andrea Titterington, Anthony Bateman, …
R1,722 Discovery Miles 17 220 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Sport is an integral part of British culture and an important aspect of modern life. Although its importance has been recognised by academic historians, sport has yet to be fully appreciated in the growing and related fields of heritage and museum studies. Sport and heritage have operated as seemingly separate spheres, yet together they can convey powerful messages; convergence between them is seen in the rise and popularity of sports museums, the collecting of sporting art and memorabilia, and popular concern over the demise of historic sports buildings and sport-related sites. These places, exhibitions and activities help to shape our understanding of sport, history and the past. The essays in this volume explore sports history as manifested in academic enquiry, museum exhibitions and heritage sites. They deal among other things with the public representation of sport and its significance; its impact on public spheres; the direction of sports heritage studies and their aims; the role of museums in public history; and place, memory and meaning in the historic sports landscape.

Britain's Olympic Women - A History (Hardcover): Jean Williams Britain's Olympic Women - A History (Hardcover)
Jean Williams
R3,059 Discovery Miles 30 590 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Britain has a long and distinguished history as an Olympic nation. However, most Olympic histories have focused on men's sport. This is the first book to tell the story of Britain's Olympic women, how they changed Olympic spectacle and how, in turn, they have reinterpreted the Games. Exploring the key themes of gender and nationalism, and presenting a wealth of new empirical, archival evidence, the book explores the sporting culture produced by British women who aspired to become Olympians, from the early years of the modern Olympic movement. It shines new light on the frameworks imposed on female athletes, individually and as a group, by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the British Olympic Association (BOA) and the various affiliated sporting international federations. Using oral history and family history sources, the book tells of the social processes through which British Olympic women have become both heroes and anti- eroes in the public consciousness. Exploring the hidden narratives around women such as Charlotte Cooper, Lottie Dod, Audrey Brown and Pat Smythe, and bringing the story into the modern era of London 2012, Dina Asher- mith and Katarina Johnson- hompson, the book helps us to better understand the complicated relationship between sport, gender, media and wider society. This is fascinating reading for anybody with an interest in sport history, Olympic history, women's history, British history or gender studies.

A Contemporary History of Women's Sport, Part One - Sporting Women, 1850-1960 (Paperback): Jean Williams A Contemporary History of Women's Sport, Part One - Sporting Women, 1850-1960 (Paperback)
Jean Williams
R1,055 Discovery Miles 10 550 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book is an historical survey of women's sport from 1850-1960. It looks at some of the more recent methodological approaches to writing sports history and raises questions about how the history of women's sport has so far been shaped by academic writers. Questions explored in this text include: What are the fresh perspectives and newly available sources for the historian of women's sport? How do these take forward established debates on women's place in sporting culture and what novel approaches do they suggest? How can our appreciation of fashion, travel, food and medical history be advanced by looking at women's involvement in sport? How can we use some of the current ideas and methodologies in the recent literature on the history and sociology of sport in order to look afresh at women's participation? Jean Williams's original research on these topics and more will be a useful resource for scholars in the fields of sports, women's studies, history and sociology.

First published in 1936, this volume contains six of the Halley Stewart Lectures - originally founded "For Research towards the Christian Ideal in All Social Life" - by some of the greatest of English scientists of the mid-20th century, each a leading authority in his respective field: cosmology, physics, meteorology, medicine and genetics. The final lecture considers the relationship between scientific knowledge and human ideals, commenting on the paradox that a century which produced such scientific advance also witnessed the most concentrated period of social, economic and political turmoil in world history.

Kit: Fashioning the Sporting Body (Hardcover): Jean Williams Kit: Fashioning the Sporting Body (Hardcover)
Jean Williams
R3,058 Discovery Miles 30 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This is the first edited collection of its kind to analyse the distinct but overlapping topics of dress, costume, sport and leisure history. For researchers of bodily adornment and movement, sport and costume history are both primarily concerned with industrial practice and embodied experience. The ways in which bodies are adorned, embellished and clothed (or revealed) highlights the hybrid nature of dress history, encompassing as it does the everyday clothing solutions of the mass of people and the unusual or more ceremonial aspects of costume, as well as elite high fashion. Although this is as yet an under-researched area, there are an increasing number of fashion and clothing undergraduate and postgraduate courses that specialise in sport and leisurewear. This publication is intended to give an introductory overview of the historical and contemporary issues as it does for the growing number of sport marketing and sports studies courses concerned with dress, costume history and branding. This book was published as a special issue of Sport in History.
