About this Unit
Sport plays a prominent role in the lives of many people across Australia and globally. It provides an opportunity for pleasure and a sense of freedom which may be missing in modern society. However, sport is a contested concept and can be a domain which both reinforces and challenges notions such as gender, ethnicity, and nation. This unit explores sport from a sociological perspective, examining the relationship between sport and society, and encourages students to challenge accepted norms and ideologies.
