    About the Author

    Catherine Palmer is Associate Professor in Sociology at Deakin University, having previously held posts at Durham University, Flinders University and the University of Adelaide. Her research principally explores the relationships between sport and social policy, where her focus is on sport-related social interactions, the consequences that might follow from those interactions, and their implications for policy and practice.

    Catherine serves on the editorial boards for the International Review for the Sociology of Sport, the Sociology of Sport Journal and Qualitative Health Research, and is a frequent reviewer for a number of international social science and health journals. Catherine has served as a member of the College of Fellows, Economic & Social Research Council (UK), the Executive Committee, Social Policy Association, UK, the Social Exclusion Board, South Australia, and has acted as a reviewer for the Austrian Science Fund, the Israel Science Foundation, the Economic & Social Research Council (UK), the Australian National Health & Medical Research Council (Population Health Grants), the Human Services Research Initiatives (Large Projects) South Australia and the South Australian Department of Health's Strategic Health Research Priority.


    The writing of this book has benefited from two periods of research leave from Durham University, and from an International Visiting Research Fellowship at the University of Sydney. I thank Raewyn Connell for her intellectual generosity during this time. Durham colleagues along the way have provided invaluable moral and oral support and I am grateful to Sarah Banks, Sue Bock, Shane Collins, Simon Hackett, Sam Hillyard, Jim McKay, Martin Roderick and Nicole Westmarland. More recent colleagues at Deakin University experienced my final flurry of activity.

    I also have David to thank for his willingness to go the distance – literally at times. I am grateful for so much.

    Finally, thanks to Chris Rojek, Jai Seaman and Martine Jonsrud at SAGE for their guidance along the way.
