Sport is a cultural expression in societies all over the world. Sport is by the engagement of the body, the equipment and the place a local phenomenon. At the same time the social significance of sport is global. Thus, studies on sport and people in motion are important with local as well as global perspectives. The 2011 eass conference will address a range of critically important issues relating to the overarching theme. Plenary speakers will include leading thinkers in sports, as well as papers and posters by researchers in the field of sport sociology within a variety of empirical, theoretical and cross disciplinary studies.

Roland Robertson (University of Aberdeen in Scotland, Director of the Centre for the Study
of Globalization, United Kingdom).

Janice Wright (University of Wollongong, Faculty of Education, Australia).
