Since the turn of the twenty-first century, sport historians have published multiple historiographic commentaries. In promulgating their own ideas for new directions and future considerations, these scholars have proposed linguistic, cultural, postmodern, visual, material, literary, spatial, and affective “turns.” They have contested the merits of theory, reflexivity, empiricism, inventive forms of representation, and the directions from which to view historical change. They have advocated for methodological approaches that range from quantification to deconstruction, for greater attention to new media and technology, for cross-cultural and multilingual investigations; for hybridity with other sport-focused subdisciplines; and for the importance of ethics. There seems no lack of paths sport historians might take as they travel ahead.1.
