Contemporary Issues

The ‘Contemporary Issues’ theme provides an opportunity for researchers to undertake initial, exploratory research that responds to emerging trends. Our current research in this area includes following the emergence of the AFL Women’s competition in the national media and the role sport has played in the career development of executive women.
