Old age has long been perceived and reported as a period of decline, diminished productivity, and debility. We contend that such a contention is a social construction that inhibits and limits full inclusion of the elderly in Western societies. Much of that perception is based on the decline of physical abilities. While aging undoubtedly results in the loss of muscle mass, aerobic capacity, and physiological change, such capacities should be considered in a relative fashion.

Abstract This study is the first to investigate education outside the classroom (EOtC) and pupils’ social relations in a large-sample experimental design. Social Cognitive Mapping was used to collect data on informal peer affiliation groups among pupils, aged 9–13 years, at the start and end of the school year. 332 pupils from 16 classes that were regularly exposed to EOtC, were compared with 158 pupils from 8 comparable classes that were not. Regular exposure to EOtC was positively associated t...

Abstract Studies of governance rarely examine how specific institutional configurations are designed to target specific ‘problem’ groups, including older adults via ‘active ageing’ policies. In Denmark, active ageing policy has been contoured by the Structural Reform of 2007, which drove changes in institutional landscapes at both national and local levels. Rather than representing a ‘hollowing out’ of control from the centre, the Danish Structural Reform comprised a decentralised re-territorial...

Pfister et al. discuss the current research in Europe which shows that women are a minority among football fans, and that there is little knowledge about the origins and the development of women’s fandom. Based on semi-structured interviews and on constructivist socialization concepts, this chapter explores the role of experiences, significant others and decisive moments in the process of becoming a fan. Parents and siblings, but also friends and peers played a decisive role in the fan socializa...

The focus of this chapter is on the authors’ research into the experiences of Muslim women in sport and physical education. International studies with Muslim women in diverse situations have positioned the authors to reflect on the role that faith, religion and feminist thought have had on enabling or denying opportunities for this groups’ sport participation. The chapter is divided into four sections: (1) Contested feminisms and issues for researching Muslim women and sport; (2) A review of stu...

Lenneis et al. explore how female fans balance the competing demands from work, family and leisure activities—including watching football. The chapter also investigates the reasons why women try so hard to find time for their ‘football addiction’. Drawing on social constructivist approaches to gender, concepts of ‘imagined communities’ and on work and leisure integration, interviews were conducted with 12 fans in Denmark. The findings consider how female fans attempt to integrate football in the...
