2018 NASSS Annual Conference
Sport Soundtrack: Sport, Music, & Culture
Thursday, November 1 • 8:00am - 9:15am
Student Poster Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session(s) will be open to undergraduate students and graduate (e.g., masters, doctoral) student submissions of works-in-progress and well-developed research presented in poster format. Similar to the Call for Sessions, this session seeks research that “promote, stimulate, and encourage the sociological study of play, games, sport and contemporary physical culture”. Supporting the NASSS mission, research posters may also reveal how sport and music challenge the social, economic, and political landscape that often illuminate inequities of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ability, age, and religious ideologies. Research poster submissions may also demonstrate how the relationship between sport and music (i.e. Alternative, Blues, Chant (Rhythmic Expression), Classical, Country, Dance, Disco, Fitness & Workout, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Heavy Metal, Hip Hop/Rap, Instrumental (Marching Bands/Pep Bands), Jazz, Latin, Movie scores, Opera, Orchestra, Popular, Punk, Reggae, Religious, R & B/Soul, Rock, Techno, Tex-Mex/Tejano, World & etc.) have influenced career industries such as medicine, psychology and counseling, media and film, event management, marketing & public relations, journalism, engineering and technology, fashion, and beyond. We encourage creativity and innovation in the development of topics. We also encourage research that challenge dominant ideologies and hegemonic structures.
