Third year SSTO students and Senior Lecturer Clive Palmer have teamed up to produce a book about the unsung heroes of the Olympic Games.
As part of a module entitled 'The Sporting Image', final year undergraduates on the Sports Journalism BA (Hons) and Sports Studies BA (Hons) courses were provided with the opportunity to have their work published.
The module scrutinises how sport is portrayed in popular and high culture; including literature, film, TV, art and music.
Developing the module through active workshops and experimentation students were engaged, through a sport related topic or stimulus, to apply modes of artistic abstraction across painting & drawing, poetry, prose & short stories, collage, sculpture, music and film.
The book, entitled 'The Sporting Image: Unsung Heroes of the Olympics 1896-2012', was published 31 July 2013 and is available for purchase here.
