"I'd rather wear a turban than a rose" : a case study of the ethics of chanting
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is a philosophically informed theoretical critique of the behaviour of sporting spectators. It deals with discourses associated with racism in the public sporting domain and interrogates the appropriate responses to them. Specifically, conceptual distinction is drawn between the nature of "offensive behaviour" and "racism". This develops and illuminates the accounts of moral opprobrium attached to racism. Its particular contribution to work in this area lies in the way that the character, cultural capital and political agency of individuals and institutions is accommodated in a way that was hitherto not commonplace.
