Dark sides of sport

9 July at 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Free

‘Dark sides of sport: Historical perspectives on match-fixing, bribery and corruption’ is a free seminar in Melbourne’s stately Old Treasury Building.

Although the field of sport history has often focused on sport’s positive aspects, sport has always had a darker side, involving cheating, doping, high-stakes betting, suspicious performances and other scandals. In this panel discussion, case studies based on recent research will be used to explore the nature and extent of match-fixing, bribery and corruption across a range of sports from an historical perspective.

The panellists are Roy Hay (Honorary Fellow, Deakin University) and Dr Mathew Turner (Contemporary Histories Research Group, Deakin University). Dr Rob Hess (Adjunct Associate Professor, Victoria University), will facilitate the discussion.
