Call for papers for The Journal of the Latin American Socio-Cultural Studies of Sport

Special Issue: “A Controversial Half Century of Education Through Sport (1970-2022)”, directed by Jean Saint-Martin (U. of Strasbourg, France)

The editorial committee of the journal ALESDE is pleased to invite you to participate in the special issue dedicated to the history of education through sport (to be published in the second half of 2023).

This special issue critically questions the evolution of education through sport from the 1970s to the present day. It is a matter of questioning particularly the issues underlying the transformations in the teaching of education through sport, whether the teaching of physical education or the evolution of sport in the school institution, as well as education through sports projects developed outside the school institution or within the framework of sports federations and other entities, as well as sports policies.

This special issue will accept articles written in French, Spanish, English, and Portuguese. Abstract  before February 28, 2023 (noon).
