Joshua I. Newman is Associate Professor of Sport Management at Florida State University. He lectures in the areas of sport and physical culture, qualitative research, cultural studies, and critical pedagogy. Broadly speaking,his research, teaching, and supervision interrogate intersections of late capitalism, identity, and cultural politics of the moving body.
Kohe and Newman investigate the parallels between sport and dance studies and also consider the emerging discipline called 'physical cultural studies'. They suggest that an intercourse between study of dance and study of sport "could provide novel methodological, theoretical, and metaphysical spaces which transcend disciplinary moorings."
