Focusing on such varied sites as British cinema, global celebrity, racialized education policy, and Disney, Sporting Pedagogies illustrates how trans/national sporting cultures, intermediaries, and institutions actively work as pedagogical sites to hegemonically re-inscribe and re-present neo-liberal discourses no sport, culture, nation, and democracy throughout the ascendant global capitalist order. Written in the progressive tradition of Norman K. Denzin, Henry Giroux, Lawrence Grossberg, and Peter McLaren, Michael D. Giardina Poignantly - and at times, devastatingly - captures the shifting terrain of social and political contestation and negotiation at play in the modern world. This book is a must-read for students in cultural studies, communications research, sports, studies, and globalization.
« Seldom is a new work published which totally transforms a discipline. Part manifesto, part personal narrative, and part cultural criticism, 'Sporting Pedagogies' is such a book. In eight closely reasoned chapters, Michael D. Giardina demonstrates the value of critical pedagogy for the study of sport, culture, politics, and identity in a post-9/11 world. This is a stunning accomplishment, at once powerful and evocative - a brilliant pedagogical intervention in its own right. 'Sporting Pedagogies' defines a new trajectory, a new starting place for the next generation of students and of scholars sport studies. The field owes Giardina a great debt.
