Dr. Jack Black BSc, MSc, PhD

Senior Lecturer in Sport Studies


I am a Senior Lecturer in Sport Studies at Sheffield Hallam University.

My research examines the interrelationships between sociology, media and communications and cultural studies. I publish on topics relating to nationalism/national identity, gender, celebrity, journalism and terrorism; theoretically informed analyses of power and cultural representation; and ecological approaches to nature, culture and leisure/sport.

My work remains philosophically informed, with particular attention afforded to the relationship between philosophy and critical social theory. These interests are reflected in my teaching on Sport and the Media, Journalism and Research Philosophy.
