Abstract

How do new technologies come to be used in sport? This book moves beyond the idea of functionality to explore the many other important factors that athletes and sporting bodies consider throughout the process of adoption. Few would question the difficulty of producing an elite athletic performance. The high level of training, combined with intense competition and pressure from media and sponsors, can be challenging for athletes and sporting bodies to negotiate. The book investigates how these factors affect the use of technology in sport, while simultaneously demonstrating the influence of new technologies on sporting practice. Using actor-network theory – an approach common in studies of science and management but seldom applied in this field – it offers readers an inside view into elite sport and the part that technology plays in training, competition and broadcasting.

Abstract

Moderne Gesellschaften, so die gemeinsame These der Hauptakteure der Akteur-Netzwerk-Theorie (ANT), entwickeln ein Programm der strikten Unterscheidung zwischen den Bereichen Natur und Gesellschaft, das den Bereich der Natur von der sozialen Verantwortung ausklammert. Nun aber stelle sich heraus, dass diese Grenzziehung immer Fiktion gewesen sei, die Grenze zwischen Natur und Gesellschaft beginne zu verschwimmen, die Natur als vom Sozialen geschiedener Bereich scheine zu verschwinden. Welche Konsequenzen hat dies mit Blick auf ökologische Probleme? Was bedeutet das für die Umweltsoziologie? Welche diesbezüglichen Potenziale eröffnet die ANT?
