Christopher M. McLeod, Ph.D.


I study sport at the intersection of ecology, economics, and politics. I hope to assist scholars, practitioners, students, and citizens in organizing sport so that it is sustainable, equitable, and just. Currently, I am using interdisciplinary theories and methods from ecological economics, economic sociology, political economy, and cultural studies to develop policy for a steady state sport economy, to measure the precarity of work in sport events, and to understand how new sport organizations conceive of and create markets. I am also interested in ontology and speculative realism, being particularly fond of Object-Oriented Ontology and Actor-Network Theory.
