'Race' and Sport: Critical Race Theory
Applied to the world of sport, this book uses a Critical Race Theory framework to reveal the underlying social norms, mores and institutionalized prejudices that have helped perpetuate those racialised relations particular to sport, and those that permeate broader society.
Kevin Hylton unpacks the central concepts of ‘race’, ethnicity, social constructionism and racialisation. The book explores key topics such as the origins, applications and terminology of critical race theory; the meaning of ‘whiteness’; the media, sport and racism; anti-racism and sport; genetics and scientific racism; and researching 'race'.
