    I just read your article ,

    ‘Transcending the Borders of Irish Identity’: Narratives of the Nationalist Footballer in Northern Ireland’,

    Well done! Loved the application of Bourdieu’s theory.

    I am at the University of Manitoba; Sociocultural aspects of sport are fascinating, and feel that situations such as this must further be explored in our field.

      Kendra,

      Many thanks for the kind words and for staying awake long enough to read my work! Yeah I’ve always found aspects of Bourdieu’s work very persuasive, with the concept of habitus in particular. As for the sociocultural study of sport, I think you will continue to see the area grow and expand in the decades to come. Are you pursuing research in the area?

        Starting to pursue research in the area, yes. Working on research trials on postmenopausal obesity this summer – this ofcourse, is more biological.Writing a major paper on surveillance and manipualtion of competitive swimmer’s bodies with application to Foucault’s ‘Discipline and Punish’. Working on a “hobby-piece” about the female apologetic in swimming .. Not sure when I’ll have time to finish it or if I ever will, but I plan to call it ” Fully covered to nearly nude : sexualization of female bodies and the female apologetic as an unwritten rule in competitive swimming”. My twitter is ken_elizabeth, we can chat more!
