Overview

Beginning with a theoretical discussion of race, sport and media, this book critically examines issues of race, racism and sports journalism and offers practical advice on sports reporting, including a discussion of guidelines for ethical journalism. In a series of case studies, representations of race will be explored through historical and contemporary analysis of international media coverage, including online and digital platforms. The background and impacts of these representations will also be discussed through interviews with athletes and sports journalists.



Subjects covered include:




  • cricket in the UK, Australian and Asian media, with particular focus on Pakistan

  • athletics and media representations of athletes, including a study of the reporting of South African runner Caster Semenya

  • football and the under-representation of British-Asians, with an analysis of how race is constructed in the digital arena

  • boxing with particular reference to Muhammad Ali, America and Islam

  • Formula One and analysis of the media reporting, international spectator response and racism towards Lewis Hamilton, described in the media as the first black driver.



Finally, the book will analyse the make-up of sports journalism, examining the causes and consequences of a lack of diversity within the profession.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'...Farrington et al. have amassed a broad collection of pertinent and insightful case studies. With a practitioner amongst their number, the authors have accessed sources from within sport and sports journalism that are often lacking from studies of this sort, particularly in the case of journalists. The authors (generally) criticize not individual writers but look to highlight trends in coverage and assess their likely causes/contexts and implications...Taking all of this into account, then, this is a book that journalists (both budding and more established) as well as media researchers can get a good deal out of.' Georgina Turner, European Journal of Communication
