Title Children, sports politics and stable work in late twentieth-century Sweden
Author(s) Hedenborg, Susanna
Date 2009
English abstract
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate in what way children have been the focus of political discussions connected to sports – here especially equestrian sports – during the second half of the 20th century. Special focus will be how children are fostered within sports and how it is possible that rearing methods have influenced who – boys or girls - do what sport. Unfortunately very little is done so far within the field on children as political actors – even though I believe there is a potential for a research project focusing on that within sports as – at least within so called Nordic Sports model - children were supposed to be trained into citizenship through sports. Whether rearing for citizenship has actually been the outcome is questionable.
