How do new technologies come to be used in sport? This is the question that Sport and technology aims to answer, moving beyond the idea of functionality to explore the many other important factors that athletes and sporting bodies consider throughout the process of adoption.
Few would question the difficulty of producing an elite athletic performance. The high level of training, combined with intense competition and pressure from media and sponsors, can be challenging for athletes and sporting bodies to negotiate. This book explores how these factors affect the use of technology in sport, while simultaneously demonstrating the influence of new technologies on sporting practice. Using actor-network theory - an approach common in studies of science and management but seldom applied in this field - it offers readers an inside view into elite sport and the part that technology plays in training, competition and broadcasting.
Sport and technology offers theoretical insights relevant to students and scholars of sport and sociology. It will also be fascinating reading for anyone interested in elite sporting practice in the twenty-first century.

Описание: An extraordinary historical, political and philosophical work that is set to not only reconfigure our understanding of democracy, but to challenge the individualistic basis of the modern liberal politics.
Описание: This book draws on actor network theory (ANT), a theory initiated in the field of science and technology studies (STS), and a new approach in the field of sports studies. ANT advocates viewing technologies and humans as symmetrical and equally significant in the field of sporting practice. The theory has the power to overcome some of the conceptual dichotomies in social science research into sports including artificial/natural human/non-human, local/global, and treats technologies as 'equal actors' in the production of sport. The scope includes such mundane things as stopwatches and sporting equipment, as well as highly visible media and communication technologies, doping, scientists and stadia. Drawing on case studies and examples, the book traces decisions about when and how technologies are integrated into sporting practice and when they are left out. It shows how sports evolve as a result of combining technologies and people in practice.
