Bicycles for Development (2016-2021)

I was a Principal Investigator (co-investigators were Dr. Brian Wilson, Dr. Brad Millington and Dr. Rob Vanwysenberghe), on a study titled Cycling Against Poverty? Researching a Sport for Development Movement and an ‘Object’ in/for Development (2016-2021). This project focused on the use of non-human objects and technologies in sport for development and peace – in particular, the bicycle – as possible catalysts for development. Publications emerging from this grant are featured in International Sociology of Sport Journal and Sociology of Sport Journal.
