Dr John Price, Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer in Journalism at the University of Sunderland, has been appointed to the Sport and Society Research Network Advisory Board.
Dr Price runs the University's MA Journalism and MA Sports Journalism programmes. He is co-founder and organiser of the annual, international Sport and Discrimination Conference and has published widely on issues of sport and discrimination, including Race, Racism and Sports Journalism.
Earlier this year, Dr Price was named as one of University Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive Sir David Bell's first ever Research and Knowledge Exchange Fellows. His research will focus on diversity in journalism.
The Sport and Society Research Network Advisory Board is renowned for its commitment to promoting interdisciplinary research and scholarship related to sports and its impact on society. They play a pivotal role in shaping the discourse around sports, culture, and media. Dr Price’s inclusion in this prestigious board signifies his integral role in shaping the future of sports studies.
Dr Price said: "It is an honour to be invited on to the Sport and Society Research Network Advisory Board.
"Sport can be a powerful force for both good and bad in our society and this network plays an important role in helping us better understand, and hopefully improve, these processes through, among other things, its annual conference and peer-reviewed international journal.
"I look forward to working with Board colleagues on these issues."
Dr Price joins former Sunderland student and Associate Lecturer Daniel Kilvington on the board.
Daniel graduated from the University in 2009 with an MA in News Journalism, followed by a PhD in Media and Cultural Studies in 2013.
Now a Reader and Course Director in Media and Cultural Studies at Leeds Beckett University, Daniel's teaching and research focuses on race, sport, and new media.
