Sport and Globalisation

Module Leader: Dr. Jim Cherrington

Module Information

The aim of this module is to assess the impact of globalization on sport. In doing this, the module examines the major sociological theories of globalization which will enable you to make connections between social, political, economic and cultural factors and their role in the promotion of nationalism and/or cross-national relations, trends and causes of inequalities between nations, the influence of global flows of power across the globe and crucially how all of these impact on sport. The module is also important in developing your ability to understand the impact of the causes and consequences of globalization and what these mean for changes in the workplace.
