2020 CSA-SCS Annual Conference: Call for Sessions Now Open

Call for Session Proposals in the Sociology of Sport

The Sociology of Sport Research Cluster is inviting Session Proposal Submission for the 54th Annual Conference of the Canadian Sociological Association (CSA). The conference will be held from Monday, June 1 through to Thursday, June 4, 2020 as part of the Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences Congress this year taking place at the Western University, in London, Ontario.

The CSA Conference theme for 2020 will be “Resisting Racism and Colonialism / Combattre le Racisme et le Colonialisme.” The Program Committee selected this theme as a way to address the broader Congress theme (Bridging Divides: Confronting Colonialism and Anti-Black Racism) through a sociological lens. The theme focuses on resistance to the structural inequalities and violence against Black, Indigenous and racialized peoples, examining social forces in the world around us while remaining self-reflexive about our own disciplinary practices.

Session Proposals should reflect the conference theme in the context of sport, exercise and physical activity. Should you have questions or concerns about your Session Proposal prior to submission, please feel free to contact us.

Sessions may be held in English and/or French and take the form of regular oral, roundtables, or panels.

Please see the instructions for submitting a Session Proposal below;
