The final podcast from the BSSH 2020 Conference with a round table discussion on the future of Sports History. On the panel are Dr Christienna Fryar of Goldsmiths, University of London, Dr Geoff Levett, editor of the Sport in History podcast, Dr Carol Osborne of Sporting Heritage and Prof Kay Schiller, the Editor-in-Chief of the BSSH’s journal Sport in History.
The four panellists give brief opening remarks on future directions for research areas in British sports history, as well as thinking through how historians of sport can use new methodologies, and develop partnerships to increase their reach among the wider public.
The greater part of the session is then handed over to the delegates to make comments on the panellists’ presentations and discuss their own ideas on the position of Sports History now and reflect on how we can advance the cause of our discipline within the academy.
