*7^th International Sport & Discrimination Conference*

*Université de Franche-Comté, France *

*Friday 31 May 2024*


*Call for Papers *

The seventh international *Sport and Discrimination Conference* examines the intersectional nature of discrimination in sport. This one-day event, *31 May 2024*, at *Université de Franche-Comté, Besancon, France, *invites presentations by academics, postgraduates, students, practitioners, and policy makers from a variety of backgrounds and specialisms. Although the conference embraces a broad focus, this year we particularly welcome abstracts concerning sport and discrimination in relation to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.**

Discrimination cuts across traditional academic subjects and the ethos behind this conference is to bring together experts from different subject areas to exchange ideas and explore what we can learn from one another.  We welcome presentations about all forms of discrimination across any sporting context, including popular culture.  As in previous years of Sport and Discrimination events, submissions may approach the conference from a variety of perspectives, including:

  * empirical findings about the nature and extent of discrimination in
  * research articulating the experiences of those who have suffered
    discrimination in sport and how such behaviours and processes may be
  * attempts to understand the intersectional nature of discrimination
    within sport;
  * contributions adding to the theoretical understanding of sport and
  * policy recommendations and further suggestions for tackling and
    reducing discrimination in sport.

Proposals (in English, please), for 20-minute presentations, should include title, abstract (250 words), the name and institutional affiliation of the presenter(s) and a concise biography (100 words). The submission deadline is 26 January 2024. All submissions and enquiries should be sent to: (SportDisc /at/ <>

The conference attendance fee is £80 for academics / practitioners and £10 for postgraduate and undergraduate students. The registration page and link will be circulated following your notification of acceptance (if accepted) in February 2024.
