Sport has become an important avenue in how we interpret, remember, and maintain our heritage. Whether it is being applied in tourism marketing and development, employed as a vehicle for social cohesion, or utilized as a way of articulating personal and collective identities, sport heritage is a vital topic in understanding what we value about the sporting past now what we wish to pass on to future generations. This edited collection brings together many new and exciting international approaches to sport heritage. Each of the chapters in this collection provides a thought-provoking sport heritage case study that would be of interest to students and researchers in history, geography, anthropology, and marketing, as well as industry practitioners working at sporting events, at sports-based heritage attractions such as museums and halls of fame, and at sports stadia and sports facilities. In addition, this collection would also be of interest to those readers with a more general interest in sport heritage and the sporting past. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Heritage Tourism.

American Indian Sports Heritage

“Neither the highly commercialized nature of professional sports today nor the more casual attitude prevailing in amateur activities captures the essence of Indian sport,” writes Joseph B. Oxendine. Through sport, Indians sought blessings from a higher spirit. Sport that evolved from religious rites retained a spiritual dimension, as seen in the attitude and manner of preparing and participating. In American Indian Sports Heritage, Oxendine discusses the history and importance in everyday life of ball games (especially lacrosse), running, archery, swimming, snow snake, hoop-and-pole, and games of chance. Indians gained nationwide visibility as athletes in baseball and football; the teams at boarding schools such as the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania and the Haskell Institute in Kansas were especially famous. Oxendine describes the apex of Indian sports during the first three decades of the twentieth century and chronicles the decline since. He looks at the career of the legendary Jim Thorpe and provides brief biographies of other Indian athletes before and after 1930.

Sport heritage is increasingly being recognised as a potent instigator of tourism; be it touring a historic stadium, visiting a sports hall of fame, or participating in a sport fantasy camp, tourists now have a vast array of locations and options to experience the sporting past. This book provides the first comprehensive resource on sport heritage as a tourist attraction. Using theoretical and applied studies from researchers in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand, this book finds that the sporting past is a key component in tourism’s future. The convergence of heritage, sport and tourism involves many different and diverse fields, including sport tourism, heritage tourism, sport management, and sports geography. This book will serve the needs of students, researchers, industry practitioners in these fields, as well as those interested in sport heritage as a tourist attraction.

Heritage and the Olympics

Page: N.A

The Olympic Games have evolved into the most prestigious sport event on the planet. As a consequence, each Games generates more and more interest from the academic community. Sociology, politics, geography and history have all played a part in helping to understand the meanings and implications of the Games. Heritage, too, offers invaluable insights into what we value about the Games, and what we would like to pass on to future generations. Each Olympic Games unquestionably represents key life-markers to a broad audience across the world, and the great events that take place within them become worthy of remembrance, celebration and protection. The more tangible heritage features are also evident; from the myriad artefacts and ephemera found in museums to the celebratory symbolism of past Olympic venues and sites that have become visitor attractions in their own right. This edited collection offers detailed and thought-provoking examples of these heritage components, and illustrates powerfully the breadth, passion and cultural significance that the Olympics engender.This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of Heritage Studies.

Museums have moved from a product to a marketing focus within the last ten years. This has entailed a painful reorientation of approaches to understanding visitors as ‘customers’; new ways of fundraising and sponsorship as government funding decreases; and grappling with using the internet for marketing. This book brings the latest in marketing thinking to bear on the museum sector taking into account both the commercial issues and social mission it involves. Carefully structured to be highly accessible the book offers: * A contemporary and relevant and global approach to museum marketing written by authors in Britain, Australia, the United States, and Asia * An approach that reflects the particular challenges museums of varying sizes face when seeking to market an experience to a diverse set of stakeholders: audience; funders; sponsors and government. * A particular focus on museum marketing in the 'Information Age' * Major case studies at the beginning and end of each section of the book, and smaller case studies within chapters The hugely experienced author team, includes both leading academics and practitioners to ensure the book has broad appeal and is both relevant, innovative and progressive in approach. It will be essential reading for students in museum studies, non-profit marketing, and arts management and marketing. It will also be equally relevant for professionals working in and managing museums and galleries, heritage attractions and ministries of arts.

The Social Psychology of Sport

ISBN: 1461580633

Category: Psychology

Page: 313

This book is written from the perspective of a social psychologist. As a conse quence, the topics covered in the upcoming chapters were chosen from among those traditionally of interest to the discipline of social psychology. A criterion for inclusion was the topic's usefulness in providing insights and/or understand ing ofthe social processes at work in sports settings. To this end, I have drawn ex tensively from mainstream journals in social psychology (e. g. , Journal of Per sonality and Social Psychology), and grounded the discussion of topics and issues on the methodologically sound studies/experiments they generally provide. There is also an equally strong interdisciplinary emphasis that features research from physical education, sociology, management science, and education. I have made a further attempt, not as successful as I would have liked, to incorporate a substan tial amount of the fine sports research that has been conducted overseas, particu larly in Europe and Australia. I am hopeful that in bringing together the works of international scholars from a variety of disciplines a clearer and balanced outline of this field will take shape. And now a word about the audience for this text and how to get the most from its pages. I would suggest that the reader have taken a course in social psychology following an introductory-level course. An introductory course in research methodology would also be helpful.

Alte Marke, neuer Erfolg

Der Retro-Trend und Auswirkungen auf den Einsatz der Marketing-Instrumente

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Retro-Trend oder Retro-Welle sind Schlagwörter, die uns heute immer öfter begegnen. Wer hätte schon in den 70er Jahren gedacht, dass man im angebrochenen Jahrtausend wieder Schlaghosen trägt? Und wer sich das riesige Angebot in den Regalen des Einzelhandels anschaut, wird permanent auf Retro-Produkte stoßen seien dies die Turnschuhe, die vor 30 Jahren getragen wurden, oder die Feuchtigkeitscreme, die schon unsere Mütter benutzten. Auch die chronologische Aufarbeitung vergangener Jahrzehnte durch die Medien zeigt eine wiederkehrende Rückbesinnung der Konsumenten. Nicht ohne Grund standen Bücher wie Die Generation Golf auf den Bestsellerlisten ganz oben. Verschiedenste erfolgreiche Retro-Produkte haben bewiesen, dass dieser Trend durchaus Chancen bietet, mit alten Marken und Produkten wieder erfolgreich zu sein. Retro-Produkte treten dabei in verschiedensten Formen auf. Zum einen können dies Waren sein, die es in der heutigen Form auch damals schon gab, zum anderen kann auch die Gestaltung allein dem Konsumenten den Eindruck vermitteln, dass ein Retro-Produkt vorliegt. Selbst innovativste Produktbereiche wie Automobile sind dabei nicht vom Retro-Design verschont geblieben. Das Phänomen, Erinnerungen an Musik, Kleidung oder andere Güter aus vergangener Zeit wieder aufzugreifen, muss auch Beachtung bei der Planung von Marketingstrategien finden. Es bieten sich augenscheinlich große Chancen zur Vermarktung neuer alter Güter. Der Produktlebenszyklus, und der damit verbundene Kosten- und Gewinnverlauf eines Retro-Produkts, unterscheidet sich hinsichtlich der Dauer der einzelnen Phasen und der auftretenden Kosten, weil RP kürzere Entwicklungszeiten beanspruchen. Allerdings lässt sich selbst ein national erfolgreiches Retro-Produkt nur bedingt international vermarkten, da der Retro-Trend naturgemäß eng an die Erlebnisse und Wertvorstellungen der Konsumenten und deren jeweiliger Kultur gebunden ist hier muss schon ein gleiches oder zumindest sehr ähnliches Angebot in der Vergangenheit vorhanden gewesen sein. Die Motive, welche zum Kauf eines Retro-Produkts verleiten, sind von entscheidender Bedeutung für die Wahl des anzubietenden Produkts, da sie sich maßgeblich von den Motiven unterscheiden, die zum Kauf eines neuartigen Artikels führen. Die Marktsegmentierung muss auf Basis einer psychografischen Betrachtung erfolgen, da demografische Merkmale nur bedingt Aufschluss über das Konsumentenverhalten liefern [...]

Taking examples from the United States and Canada, this comprehensive text offers compassionate and critical accounts of the Native American sporting experience. It challenges popular images of indigenous athletes and athletics; it explores Native American participation in and appropriation of EuroAmerican sports; and it unpacks social categories, particularly gender, race and heritage and their implications for understanding Native Americans and sport in North America. Contributors discuss the interplay of power and possibility, difference and identity, representation and remembrance that have shaped the means and meanings of American Indians playing sport. Included in this book are discussions on: continuity and change, the place of sport in the survival and adaptation of indigenous beliefs and behaviours the play of power and the power of play within indigenous communities, intercultural spaces, and American popular culture the contradictions and conditions of possibilities sport has offered American Indians the politics and poetics of identity the axes of difference structuring the indigenous sporting experience, particularly, gender, race, and nationalism representations and stagings of Indianness in the context of sport.
