Researching disability sport: Theory, method, practice

Ben Powis (Editor), James Brighton (Editor), P. David Howe (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Featuring contributions from leading and up-and-coming scholars around the world, the book’s wide-ranging chapters offer novel perspectives on the relationship between theory, method and empiricism in disability sport research and highlight how researchers can be both innovative and informed when entering the field. It also explores methodological considerations when conducting disability sport research, including social, cultural, and political reflections of the research process from disabled and non-disabled academics. This much-needed resource supports disability sport scholars in developing a conceptual grounding in the subject and establishes a space for intersectional accounts of sport and physical activity which challenge homogenous understandings of disability.
