Sport sociology

Social- and Sport Sciences at NTNU have an emphasis on Sport Sociology. The sociologists in this research group view sports in light of classical and modern sociology, with an analysis of social inequalities connected to gender, ethnicity, social class and age. Another important focus is sports as a cultural phenomenon in late modern society, seen both from the athlete’s and a public perspective.
