Transformative Sporting Visions

In this introduction to this special issue on Transformative Visions of Sport I draw attention to the tension critical sport studies scholars are likely to experience between the attention they draw to the role of sport in perpetuating and normalizing various injustices and their own passion for particular sports. It is no accident that most critical sport studies scholars are also huge fans of various competitions/games, and, indeed, I would argue, this may be a requirement for gaining sport literacy. Each of the five articles included in this special issue aims to showcase their author(s) integration of passion for sport with a vision for social change and social justice.
