Sport, Individual & Society

The section explores the human and social science of sport, body, and movement as cultural phenomena and as spaces for learning and creating identities.

The section has two central research perspectives: The historical and sociological research and the psychology and educational studies. In addition to this, coaching and coaching psychology is a central focus area in the section.

Moreover, interdisciplinary designed studies using quantitative and/or qualitative approaches are part of the work of the research group.

Furthermore, the group's research is closely tied to that of professional praxis and the development of education and training at different levels, such as consultant work, organisational development, politics, and all levels of education. The members of the unit strive towards close cooperation with the surrounding community through dissemination, research, and development projects.
