It is my pleasure to announce that the call for submissions for the one-day conference*On the same page? The theory-practice divide and** gendered media representations of sport*is now open.

The event, which will be held at the Northumbria University’s London campus on *17th January, 2020*, is funded by the Leisure Studies Association and Northumbria University’s Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences.

*Call for submissions*

*Keynote speaker: *to be announced in September 2019

*Keynote panel:* to be announced in October 2019

The quality and influence of research produced by sports media scholars from a range of disciplines is improved by both an interdisciplinary approach and**the direct, active involvement of stakeholders.**As such, the aim of this one-day conference is to provide a platform for the knowledge exchange between scholars (from a range of disciplines), stakeholders, and practitioners who are united by a focus on sports media.

The event will take stock of the current position by examining notable case studies from the recent past. The event aims to foster new inter- and/or post-disciplinary trajectories and scholarship/practitioner collaborations. More specifically, the event has *four objectives*/:/

 1. To stimulate conversations between academic disciplines, as well as
    between fields of media policy and practice;
 2. To elaborate an historically-informed, future-focused research
    agenda that accounts for the needs and concerns of policy makers and
 3. To disseminate emerging findings and insights to a wide audience of
    academics and non-academics;
 4. To identify and agree a series of next steps and practical actions
    by which to progress the Network and its concerns.

*Submissions:***We welcome 15-minute papers, multi-media or documentary presentations which address the study of the gendered nature of sports media, including but not limited to such topics as:

  * Methodological innovation
  * Pathways to inter-disciplinary collaboration
  * Sharing research outcomes with media practitioners
  * Overcoming gender bias in sports media industries
  * Sports media representation of female non-athletes
  * Sports media, gender and race
  * Inclusive and exclusive framing of trans athletes

It is intended that the symposium will lead to a special edition collection for Routledge’s /Advances in Leisure Studies /series.
