Abstract

In Part Two of the Handbook, we examine the interdisciplinary links that do or should exist between the sociology of sport and other social scientific disciplines and sub-disciplines. Interdisciplinary work has long been positively valued and widely practiced by many social scientists, and strongly favoured by universities and other institutions that fund social research. Sociology has maintained and extended particularly strong ties and orientations towards social sciences such as anthropology, human geography, and political science, and these links have provided an effective basis for undertaking interdisciplinary work. A key impetus for such activity lies in the various theories, methods, and substantive research questions that derive at least in part from sociology, and which are influential in these and other disciplines.
