Whether one is a participant, a casual spectator, a die-hard fan, or a
critic, sport, in all its varieties and forms, play a significant role

competitions have long been a part of human civilization and raise a

philosophical themes or issues arising in the study of Sport. The
focus of the panel will depend, in part, on the submitted abstracts.

each other and then 15 minutes or more for audience Q&A. There will
also be a panel on the Rhetoric of Sport.

Submissions are welcome on any philosophical theme or issue arising in
the study of Sport. Abstract should be 300-500 words. Send via email
