As a growing body of research is attuned to, much of the sociology of sport andrelated fields such as physical cultural studies is given over to studying activeand inactive bodies; that is, to understanding, analyzing and problematisingbodies that move in ways that challenge and contest the dominant, taken-forgrantedorthodoxies within which movement and embodiment are more typicallythought about (Hanold 2010; Francombe, 2013; Markula, 2015). This sharedquest to treat human movement as a critical scholarly endeavor has given rise tonew methodological and theoretical traditions, notably an interest in embodimentand in more engaged methods such as auto-ethnography and the use of visualtechniques to capture aspects of the social and sporting worlds under study.
