ISHPES encourages its members to add ISHPES as a tag on academic social networking sites such as to easily find other scholars.



To improve communications between sports historians and other sport scholars, ISHPES  established an e-mail network of sports scholars. This network was originally called SPORTHIST and was renamed H-Sport when it moved to H-Net, the Humanities and Social Sciences Online Network (

Anyone interested in sport history, sociology, philosophy, or other socio-cultural studies can subscribe to H-Sport.  Membership in ISHPES is not necessary and subscription is free. Network subscribers are able to submit and receive information and announcements to and from colleagues throughout the world.  H-Sport has also established several resources, including a quarterly Journal Watch for academic articles published about sport, an Archive Project which highlights archival collections of interest to sport scholars, and a Teaching Initiative which includes course syllabi.

Junior Scholars are encouraged to submit their name and project title to the Thesis & Dissertations in Progress list, maintained on H-Sport. H-Sport also announces new bookspublished on sport each quarter, and ISHPES members are encouraged to share their books with the H-Sport community.

Because H-Sport is part of H-Net, announcements can be submitted to all of lists managed by H-Net, reaching tens of thousands of scholars.

If you wish to subscribe to H-Sport, you can do so here.

You will receive more information about H-Sport after you subscribe.  If you have any questions, please contact the H-Sport Editorial Team.
