Jim Cherrington

Senior Lecturer, sport sociology, Sheffield Hallam University

Jim teaches sport sociology at Sheffield Hallam University, focusing particularly on social inclusion, nature and identity in sport and physical activity. His research explores how identity, bodies, knowledges, and objects are experienced in everyday life, with much of his recent work dedicated to investigating the historical, socio-technical, and political conditions of 'nature' (sport). He is also interested in methodological innovation and is committed to finding novel ways of documenting a range of human-nonhuman relationships.
