Abstract

Sport, Physical Culture and the Moving Body is an important collection that will underpin and inform several perspectives and engagements-to-come with sport, leisure and physical culture. This volume meaningfully captures and expands the momentum created by feminist scholars who in the last decade have underlined the relevance of more-than-human theoretical orientations in addressing the domains of sport and leisure. In doing so, the book sets out a number of questions and domains of enquiry that push the boundaries of sport and leisure scholarship and provide meaningful lines of flight in approaching the material-discursive entanglements that weave together bodies, technologies and ecologies. The breadth of topics addressed in the collection surely makes this book a go-to resource for post-graduate students and for scholars across the fields of leisure, sport and physical cultural studies. However, while advancing exciting domains of enquiry, this anthology also leaves open some important questions and gaps. In this review, I briefly underline two issues that I contend are particularly relevant for more-than-human analyses of sport, leisure and physical culture.
