  • Sports & the Pacific Region Conf.

    Dear Colleagues,

    The National University of Samoa (NUS), with the support of major
    sponsors and partners, including the School of Human Movement,
    Recreation and Performance at Victoria University (Australia), is to
    host its inaugural international sport conference. Papers from the
    fields of sport history, sport tourism, sport education, sport
    management, sport philosophy, sport law, sport business and comparative
    sports studies are invited. Postgraduate student presentations are
    especially encouraged. The broad theme of the conference is 'Sport and
    the Pacific Region: Cross-Cultural Currents', although papers dealing
    with more specific themes and topics are welcome. It is anticipated
    that papers from the conference will be published in an edited
    anthology. Potential delegates, presenters and sponsors should access
    the conference website at
    Queries from local (Pacific Island and Samoan) delegates should be
    directed to Suzie Schuster at [email protected]. Queries from
    international (outside the Pacific region) delegates should be directed
    to Rob Hess at [email protected]. The deadline for abstracts is 31
    August 2007.

    Samoa is the host nation for the South Pacific Games (25 August - 17
    September 2007) and NUS will be part of the Official Games Village. The
    National University of Samoa, situated in the capital city of Apia, was
    established in 1984 and offers more than 60 academic, technical and
    vocational programs, including bachelor and postgraduate degrees. The
    site for the conference will be the NUS campus, which is set in a
    peaceful environment with tranquil views of the Pacific Ocean.
