  • But How' (Re)Imagining the Public Place of (Black Canadian) Sport
           History

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 1970, Earle P. Zeigler deplored that, despite the omnipresence of history in various forms in curricula from elementary to university, few graduates had a good handle on general historical knowledge, let alone on the history of sport.1 More than fifty years on, despite a curricular turn toward a historical-thinking approach, mainstream (critical) understanding of history remains tenuous. Admittedly, popular ignorance of history is a perennial intergenerational complaint.2 Still, problematic approaches to information-heavy and continuity-reliant curricula, along with dramatized renderings of the past in public histories ("memory-history") enhance the issue, especially in a small, unsettled settler nation such as ...

  • Inside/Out: A Cultural Prism of Blackness and Whiteness in Sport History

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: History has largely been written by white men about white men. The stories told are of privileged men who navigated their positions in the world by overcoming obstacles or personal crises to become evolved humans. Many stories are framed around colonizers who settled in an unknown land and facilitated a "better," Eurocentric world. Not surprisingly, the history of mainstream sport largely follows this narrative. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, however, some sport historians expanded the breadth of knowledge to relocate men of color from the periphery of their own narratives to the middle. Men such as Jackie Robinson, Jack Johnson, and Jesse Owens became central figures in the narrative of how Black men faced ... Read More

  • Public Health Approaches to Sport History

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In January 1937, the School Physicians' Bulletin got a new editor and a new name: the Journal of School Health. An editorial elaborated on the shifting perspective that accompanied the change in title. Rather than simply diagnosing and treating diseases, those responsible for overseeing the health of school children should instead "provide such an environment, routine, and protection as will prevent the development of abnormalities and handicaps."1 In other words, an exclusively medical perspective toward health was not sufficient. Beyond focusing on treating cases of ill health when they arose, the newly minted Journal of School Health would thus encourage a public health approach.Subsequent articles explicitly ... Read More

  • Looking at the Past, Thinking about the Future: The Journal of Sport
           History

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As the articles in this special issue have shown, the North American Society for Sport History (NASSH), and the discipline of sport history more broadly, has changed in many ways over the past half-century. Since 1974, NASSH has published the Journal of Sport History (JSH). Since then, forty-eight volumes of the journal have contained peer-reviewed, primary-sourced, and historiographical articles; book, film, and museum reviews; research notes; and forums dedicated to the history of sport and physical culture. To commemorate the roles of NASSH and the JSH in the transformation of the field of sport history, as well as share concerns and hopes for the future, we (1) explain the beginnings of the JSH; (2) provide an ...

  • An Introduction to "50 Years: The North American Society for Sport History
           (NASSH)"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As with most facets of life, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the annual North American Society for Sport History (NASSH) convention. The abrupt onset of the pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 meeting, the first time NASSH did not convene since its inaugural conference in 1973. The continued severity of COVID-19 required NASSH to meet online in 2021, with members signing on to a virtual platform to share their work and engage with colleagues and friends. Yet, despite the challenges of online meetings and digital presentations, for many the essence of NASSH remained unchanged. President David K. Wiggins captured this in his closing commentary at the 2021 meeting: "I have been reminded on an almost daily ... Read More

  • A Personal Involvement in the Origin of NASSH

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I have a strong desire to record my reminiscences of the origin of the North American Society for Sport History (NASSH), as I come close to the age of the passing of Guy M. Lewis, 87, the founder of the organization.Guy M. Lewis was the force behind the origin of NASSH. I believe there is no question about Lewis as the dominant figure. Nevertheless, I am a strong believer that most, if not all, individuals are strongly influenced by the culture in which they live, and Lewis was no different. He came along in the 1960s when the study of the history of sport and physical activity, along with other sport disciplinary areas, was beginning to be more accepted as a field in higher education. More than any other ... Read More

      Abstract: Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past.On November 26, 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the two authors of this article participated in a Zoom conference call interview with professor emeritus Dr. Alan Metcalfe of the University of Windsor and his wife Heather. Both authors first became acquainted with Metcalfe when he served as their master's degree thesis advisor1 and thereafter grew to appreciate the impact he had on their academic development and on the development of the field more broadly. At one point in this interview, when asked if he ... Read More

  • A Graduate Student during the Formative Years of Sport History and Sport
           Studies, 1969–79: Personal Remembrances and Reflections

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This is not a history of sport history, NASSH, or sport studies. Instead, it is a compendium of my personal remembrances and reflections during my graduate student days in physical education and history, along with those of three of my graduate student colleagues between 1969 and 1979, when sport history and sport studies were evolving and when NASSH was founded. My experiences, along with those of my friends, exemplify the central role highly committed graduate students played in launching these fields, significance of mentor/student relationships, and unique graduate student culture that promoted publishing and organizational work. Pursuant to the development of these new fields of scholarly pursuit, new graduate ... Read More

  • NASSH and the Evolution of Sport History in North America

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I examine the evolution of sport history as a vital and respectable subject in North America, with special attention given to analyzing the role of the North American Society for Sport History (NASSH) in helping the discipline achieve this stature. In the 1960s, there was no academic field called "sport history," though journalists did write modestly researched and lightly analyzed sport biographies and narratives for a popular audience. The subject was not taught in departments of history and barely in physical education (PE), which typically had classes like "The History and Philosophy of Sport and Physical Education." Academic historians neglected sport history because it seemed a frivolous topic compared to ... Read More

  • US-Based Historical Studies of Sports and the Academe of Japan and China

      Abstract: In the early twenty-first century, Routledge, a British multinational global academic publisher, released the Routledge Companion to Sport History (2010), a book that has been read by scholars and students around the world.1 Each chapter of the book analyzes and interprets the past, present, and future of research and accomplishments in each theme, region, and nation. Mark Dyreson, a leading historian of US sports at Pennsylvania State University, writes the chapter on the United States, looking back from the nineteenth to twenty-first century, discussing researchers' academic origins and backgrounds.2 In so doing, Dyreson presents an intriguing way to classify researchers into two categories, which can be applied ...

  • Speaking Up, Speaking Out, and Speaking Back to Feminism in Sport History:
           Fifty Years on at NASSH

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Pressed to look back over the half-century of NASSH's existence, and the nature of my own participation as a sport historian in almost four decades of that history, what first sprang to my mind was the song "Forty Years On" that we used to sing at the annual assembly of my all-girls high school in the northeast of England. I do not remember ever wondering why an assembly of teenage girls all sang that rousing hymn with such gusto when it related so completely to the experiences of the male sex in battle and a war that few of us had experienced, except in the cradle or through the reminiscences of our parents. Nor did I associate the chorus about the "tramp of the twenty-two men" with their warring rugby exploits on ... Read More
