The Social Justice Through Sport and Exercise Psychology Symposium will be held at the University of Tennessee’s Frieson Black Cultural Center March 26 – 28. The purpose of the Symposium is to bring together sport and exercise psychology researchers and practitioners whose work focuses on social justice and praxis, marginalized communities, participants lacking scholarly attention, or that falls outside the positivist mainstream of sport psychology. A main purpose of this symposium is to bring together people passionate about these issues so that we can share our work as well as support and encourage each other. The symposium structure will encourage interaction and dialogue so that we may discuss professional issues as well as our research and practice. Although the focus is on sport and exercise psychology, we welcome submissions from scholars and practitioners from related disciplines.
The Symposium will consist of sport and exercise psychology research and praxis presentations as individual presentations and symposia. All presentations are original work, including theoretical or conceptual topics, reviews of literature, praxis or professional practice, creative teaching practices, and/or policy.
Student admission to is $50 and includes two days of continental breakfasts and lunch in addition to the programming. More information about the event, including registration, can be found here.
