  • Erasmus Mundus and Education: The Leisure, Entertainment and Governance Initiative

    Carlsson, Bosse; Hjelseth, Arve; Osborn, Guy (2010)
    The papers collected here arose out of participation in, or were inspired by, an EU funded Erasmus Mundus Intensive Programme, entitled Leisure Entertainment and Governance (LEGo) that took place in Trondheim, Norway in March and April 2009. The initiative for the special issue arose out of this, and the partnership forged between the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Malmö University in Sweden, and the University of Westminster in the UK.

    Emotional Hooligan: Post-Subcultural Research and the Histories of Britain’s Football Gangs

    Redhead, Steve (2007)
    This review essay looks anew at the connection between ‘deviant’ football hooligan literature and contemporary football hooligan subcultures. It considers some implications for the study of male dominated hooligan subcultures and the methodologies to be employed. The essay draws on new research work into the ‘low’ sport journalism genre of British football hooliganism literature, involving a comprehensive collection and reading of myriad football hooligan fan memoirs as well as interviews wit...

    Rupp LL.M., Hajo (2014)
    Such a statement is resonant of a severe crime, but what sounds like a terrible and degrading misdeed turns out to concern the sale of pictures, taken at a celebrity wedding reception.

They granted the British magazine OK! exclusive rights to publish pictures of their marriage. However a ...

    The Regulation of on-the-ball Offences: Challenges in Court

    Pendlebury, Adam (2012)
    Following the Court of Appeal’s judgment in R v Barnes it was argued that on-the-ball contacts in sport, in breach of the rules of the game, were unlikely to be classed as criminal. It was perceived that these types of injury-causing acts were not sufficiently grave to warrant criminality and were better regulated internally or by the civil law. However, the imprisonment of amateur footballer Mark Chapman, for an injury-causing tackle, has challenged this viewpoint. This paper will explore th...

    Post Editorial

    Greenfield, Steve; James, Mark; Osborn, Guy (2013)
    Volume 11 of the ESLJ provided a great example of the eclectic nature of material that we receive and were delighted to publish. Coverage included a historical take on the censorship of film, concentrating on the role of local councils in the north west of England, a study on celebrity defendants in the USA and work on both player transfers in association football and character merchandising of fictional characters.
