Jackson, Daniel

Edited by The Centre for Comparative Politics and Media Research Bournemouth University - 2021

In this report, scholars from around the world reflect on and evaluate the 2020 Tokyo Olympiad. They focus on global sport is primarily in symbolic terms—that is, they are guided by the construction, interpretation, and contestation of messages and their meaning. The authors think of these messages and meanings expansively, taking an interest in communication at individual, organizational, mediated, and political levels. The academic experts reflect this point of view, with scholars of communication and media as well as those with interests in history, political science, psychology, sociology, and more.
