Topic: Sport Media and Ethnicity dissertation paper

The overall dissertation is based on how stereotypes are displayed within sport media with the main topics being gender and ethnicity. This chapter that I am asking you to write needs to focus on how ethnicity is displayed within the sporting media.

The first subheading is a general overview of the way the media portray ethnicity within sport. The second subheading is ethnic identity, which needs to focus on how ethnic groups define themselves through sport and how sport has created ‘imagined communities’.

The third subheading is sport and ethnic relations, which focuses on how sport conveys ideas surrounding social order and how ethnic groups are challenging the practices of mainstream society/ adapt sport to support their ethnic groups.

The fourth subheading looks at the general stereotypes ethnic-related created within sporting environments and whether athletes have had to adapt to fit in to these stereotypes to exceed, or whether athletes have taken the negative stereotype and used it to their advantage.

The last subheading is wider implications, this looks at how ethnicity is viewed on a global scale, for example, how physical education and extra-curricular activities has been incorporated into schools and affected the ethnic minorities, whether it being positive or negative.
