Technological advances over the past few decades have not only witnessed the rise of web-based design and interactive new media platforms, but have also fueled the development of the digital humanities and digital history. Additionally, there is a growing interest among sports scholars in using techniques of digital history, and in discussing the promise and limitations of these approaches. This workshop features a diverse group of scholars interested in extending these conversations, especially in relationship to the historical study of sport and related realms including recreation, games, physical activity, and the moving body.

The “Doing Sport History in the Digital Present” Workshop is sponsored by the North American Society for Sport History and the Sports, Society, and Technology program at the Georgia Institute of Technology. This workshop will be held just prior to the annual meeting of the North American Society for Sport History (NASSH) at Georgia Tech. The “Doing Sport History in the Digital Present” workshop is free and open to the public. More information including schedule of presentations can be found on the NASSH 2016 website at http://pwp.gatech.edu/sst/doing-sport-history/

The workshop runs from 10:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on May 25, and from 8:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on May 26.
