On this occasion of the silver anniversary of NASSS, this year's theme of "Interdisciplinary Dialogues" recognizes the diverse theoretical and methodological movements that scholars have enacted over the past twenty-five years to study sport both within and beyond the boundaries of sociology. "Interdisciplinary Dialogues" also suggests the necessity of continuing conversations among and between sport scholars and those working within other disciplines and interdisciplinary "fields."
Conference Highlights

Pre-Conference Symposium

On Wednesday, November 3, 2004 from 7-9 pm, NASSS will host "Human Rights in the North American Borderlands: A Symposium." In this symposium a panel of local Tucson activists and academics will discuss immigrant, indigenous, and civil rights, environmental justice, and labor and anti-racist organizing in the context of local and global border militarization and "free" trade. Speakers will include Guadalupe Castillo, Pima Community College; Raquel Rubio-Goldsmith, University of Arizona; Jennifer Allen, Border Action Network. Pat António Goldsmith, the University of Wisconsin, Parkside will preside.

Thursday Special Session

Graduate Workshop - Negotiating the Publication Terrain

Alissa Overend and Emma Wensing, NASSS Graduate Student Executive Board Members, have organized a special Thursday session, designed for but not restricted to graduate students that will focus on the publication process. The session will include three panelists in a round table format: Annelies Knoppers, the newly appointed editor of the Sociology of Sport Journal; Peter Donnelly, the editor of the International Review of the Sociology of Sport; and Audrey Giles, an all-but-defended Ph.D. student. Each presenter will speak for about 10-15 minutes, leaving ample time for a question and answer period.

Friday Keynote Address

The Decolonial Queer Body

Emma Pérez is an historian, a creative writer and a feminist critic. Her publications include: Gulf Dreams, Third Woman Press, 1996 and The Decolonial Imaginary: Writing Chicanas into History, Indiana University Press, 1999. She taught in the Department of History at the University of Texas, El Paso for over ten years. She recently joined the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder as an Associate Professor. Postcolonial critic Homi Bhabha notes that Pérez "has a distinctive and beautiful voice. Her work is written across national/cultural/sexual borders that are difficult to cross." She's recently completed an historical novel titled, Forgetting the Alamo, Or, Blood Memory. Her Friday keynote will feature a journey that summarizes the contributions of a few decolonial queer scholars who theorize the decolonial queer body.

Take a Student to Lunch on Friday

As in the past, Friday will offer the annual "Take A Student to Lunch" opportunity where faculty treat graduate students to lunch.

Saturday Keynote Panel

Interdisciplinary Dialogues: (Post)Identity and Sport

Ben Carrington, University of Texas

Richard Gruneau, Simon Fraser University

Othello Harris, Miami University

Margaret MacNeill, University of Toronto

Each panelist was asked to respond to the following prompt:

The past twenty-five years and beyond have witnessed various responses to "identity" and inequality both within and outside the realm of sport. These range from identity-based social movements (i.e. women's movements, indigenous rights movements) designed to challenge inequality to nonidentarian critiques that posit identity as the very mode enabling the reproduction of inequality. Moreover, debates about the usefulness of identity as a basis for scholarly analysis and political action have led many scholars to revise fundamental assumptions about the nature of subjectivity, agency, and the intersection of axes of difference. Where do you position your work among these various responses? What theorists or theoretical movements have been influential in your thinking? What insights does your position offer for scholars of sport and the future direction of the field?
