This interdisciplinary two-day conference re-examines the idea of sport in textual culture and seeks to reappraise the significance of physical culture beyond the traditional historical frameworks. The conference is interested in the inclusion of sport and physical culture within textual culture, and seeks to reassess sportís place within the wider cultural landscape. It asks how sport and sporting lexis is transformed in subsequent cultural outputs from novels, poetry, theatre, films and television, and how its importance to the wider population is reflected and developed in these outputs. It is also interested in exploring the broader context of the changing nature of sportís inclusion within literature from the late eighteenth century to the present.
