Entering its fifth year, the Sport and Society Conference meets annually to discuss the many facets of sport and its relation to society as a whole. Topics are intentionally broad to encourage an interdisciplinary discussion of the themes, which include:

* Sporting Cultures and Identities * Sport and Health * Sports Education * Sports Management and Commercialization * Special Focus for 2014: Sport and Development

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops, roundtables, and more for presentation at the conference. We encourage professors and students, as well as practitioners, healthcare professionals, advocacy groups, NGOs and all other interested parties.

Graduate Students are eligible for the Graduate Scholar Award, which provides opportunities to chair and moderate sessions, participate in the organization of the conference, and come with a full fee waiver.

Conference presentations are eligible for article submission to the fully peer-refereed International Journal of Sport and Society. Participants receive free access to the online version of this journal for one year after the conference.

The Sport and Society Conference is hosted by UNIVERSO - Universidade Salgado de Oliveira in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro. The conference is excited to visit Rio de Janeiro mere days after the exciting conclusion to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It is a prime time to explore the relationship of sport and society through our many thematic lenses, and especially the influence of Sport and Development, which is one of our special themes for the 2014 event.
