In her work Demonic Grounds (2006), critical-race and feminist theorist Kathryn McKittrick argues that musical expressions are in fact deeply geographic forms of knowledge which upend traditional academic hierarchies (p. 139). With this in mind, this session provides a space for scholarship that may engage with/draw on a musical lens to critically reflect on geographies of sport and physical culture. In what ways do spaces set the tone for different bodies to move through, interact in, and occupy the sporting arena? How might musicality speak to or provide a vantage point from which to consider disruptive or reorienting strategies to transform these spaces? Papers should seek to examine how these geographies/places/spaces of sport are not simply neutral structures or landscapes but are embedded within greater projects which work to maintain/reorient/challenge exclusions and inclusions within sport.
