Abstract

Many years ago, a majority of histories of sport were simplistically dismissed by mainstream academics as written by 'fans with typewriters'. From the 1980s however, historians of sport increasingly became a small but distinctive feature of university history and sports studies departments, though their work was largely rooted in social history and theory.
