Traditionalism and Timeliness in Modern Sport

Fodor Peter

APSTRACT: Applied Studies in Agribusiness and Commerce, 2015, vol. 09, issue 1-2

Abstract: The essay links social historical narratives about modernity with cultural studies views on sport, and investigates what cultural and social functions are associated with sport in our highly technicized capitalist world. While pursuing this research I always keep in mind how professional spectacle sports interact with different forms of technical media.
