Centre for Diversity Equity and Inclusion
Led by Professor Anne Flintoff, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Research Centre brings together researchers with a shared concern for critical social research within the broad areas of sport, physical education, leisure and culture.
Our research practice is underpinned by principles of equity and social justice and reflects a commitment to examining inequities resulting from gender, ‘race’, sexuality, class, disability, age or religion and their intersections.
Currently our work falls into one of five themes: Theory and Methodologies: Young People’s Experiences of Physical Education and Sport; Sport, Migration and Diasporic Communities, Sport and Leisure, Cultures and Identities, and Policies and Practices. Please view examples of case studies of our work under each theme below under Our Research.
