A review of tourism policy for the 2012 Olympics

Description

Sport which are explicitly linked with the hosting of the Olympic Games in London in 2012. It reflects on the use of evidence gained from wider events hosting strategies utilized elsewhere, but notes concern about the lack of a coherent marketing theme and the potential to spread the tourism benefits beyond the main event venues. It concludes citing again the oft-noted problem about the links between tourism and wider cultural strategy development.

Berlin in 1936: old and new work on the nazi olympics

Description

No sooner had the Seoul Olympics drawn to their successful conclusion than Barcelona, the Catalonian capital, began preparations to host the Twenty-fourth Games in 1992. The Seoul Olympics were the least beset by political problems in recent times, although the extent to which this was achieved by police surveillance and sympathetic TV producers we can only guess. Like previous games they were a triumph for commercialism and nationalism, but since these have been a normal part of the Olympics for so long now it was the drug issue that rivalled brilliant sporting performances for the headlines.

The main aim of the E4L project is to investigate learners' opinions and experiences about e-learning from adult and community learning (ACL), further (FE) and higher education (HE). Attempts made to engage learners and ask for their participation in the project from each of the three sectors. Participation from both ACL and HE learners was gained, however it has been more difficult to engage those in FE. This document outlines and explains the methods used to try and engage FE learners and the experiences of the project team.

The British Government and the Olympic movement: The 1948 London Olympics

Description

Despite being the first Summer Olympics held after the Second World War, the 1948 London Olympics have failed to attract the historical interest accorded to subsequent Olympiads. Focusing upon the British government, this article explores the historical significance of the XIV Olympiad. Quite apart from helping to re-launch the Olympic movement following the lengthy gap since the 1936 Berlin games, the 1948 London Olympics offer useful insights into the development of both the Olympic movement and the policy of British governments towards the Olympics. Firstly, the event reaffirmed recent trends qualifying the Olympic movement's enduring attempt to stress that the Olympics really were 'games' rising above political and commercial issues; secondly, it prompted yet another chapter in the

Perceptions of Terrorism Threats at the 2004 Olympic Games: Implications for Sport Events

Description

Keltner, 2001), we investigated effects of anger and fear on risk judgments of 277 attendees at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Attendees who reported being fearful or feeling unsafe at the Games displayed increased risk estimates and associated concerns, whilst respondents expressing defiance and anger produced opposite reactions. Male respondents had less pessimistic risk perceptions than did females, and men were more likely than women to report that the increased security measures detracted from their Olympic Games experience. Nationality had minimal effect on perceptions of risk except in the case of the host country, with Greek respondents reporting fewer concerns for safety but greater awareness of the security measures present at the Games. The discussion focuses on theoretical, methodol

The Olympic idea

Description

It is hardly surprising that in the midst of his combat with Grousset, de Coubertin felt the need once again to revitalize himself on foreign soil, this time in the United States. Because of the Grousset campaign, he wrote: 'I wanted to enlarge the circle of models to follow; there were also some across the ocean and, if a crisis of educational Anglophobia was befalling us in France, we had at least the youth of the United States to provide as an example to our own.' [ 1] While it was true enough, as he went on to claim, that few Frenchmen cared about the doings of the American universities at the time, broad interest in the US was apparent in Parisian circles. [2] Boutmy, for one, had passed on from his English studies to an equal obsession with writing about the USA, and many of the Le

Public diplomacy games: a comparative study of American and Japanese responses to the interplay of nationalism, ideology and Chinese soft power strategies around the 2008 Beijing Olympics

Description

The Olympic Games are global communication events that offer host-nations the unique opportunity to promote a soft power agenda by allowing them to construct global messages about their cultural identities and work towards public diplomacy goals that may be more difficult to achieve under normal circumstances. At the same time, however, the Olympics accentuate nationalist and patriotic sentiment, especially in host-nations. Nationalist conviction must be conceptually differentiated from support for the national government. Indeed, we suggest that one of the tasks of governments of Olympic host cities is to manage strong nationalist emotions in order that they support the public diplomacy efforts associated with the Olympic Games. In this paper, American and Japanese media responses to the

Mapping the Olympic growth machine

Description

Theories of growth machines and urban regimes have informed the study of urban political economy for more than three decades, but these theories remain focused on intra-urban processes. Using a case study of the bidding process and the planning of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, we explore the transnational dimensions of the urban growth machine and explore common aspects between the growth machine and regime theory literature and the literatures on the entrepreneurial city and transnational urban policy transfers. Through its evolving networks with other urban regimes, Vancouver's growth machine provides a ready forum in which local elites can acquire specialized knowledge on new urban entrepreneurial strategies elsewhere. Actors situated in different parts of the local growt

?2012): origins, evolution and projections

Description

The Olympic Games is recognised worldwide as the largest sports mega-event - certainly, the event attracting the largest amount of media coverage globally. As well as a sports event, the Olympics are a cultural phenomenon, with a history spanning more than 100 years and supported by a global network of organisations with an educational and intercultural remit that defines itself as a Movement and aspires to promote Olympism as a 'philosophy of life', headed by the International Olympic Committee. What is less known is that the Games also incorporate 100 years of Olympic cultural and arts programming and that such experience is playing a growing role defining or contributing to respective host cities' cultural policies. This paper offers an overview of the cultural dimension of the Olymp

Genderisation and Sexuality of the Female Olympic Athlete

Description

Clayton (2002) argue that tennis player Anna Kournikova represents the most powerful symbol of genderisation in sport. Such a supposition is interesting as Kournikova, while successful, never really achieved dominance in her game, instead being better recognised in recent years for her modelling and celebrity profile. The image of Kournikova is, no doubt, a sexualised one.

Manly Displays: Exhibitions and the Revival of the Olympic Games

Description

This article explores the shift from international exhibitions to the Modern Olympic Games as the preferred site for the public performance of manly character. As fin-de-siecle European and American societies increasingly grew concerned about the waning vitality of men and the individual's marginalization in a mechanized world, they sought out a new form of mass spectacle. National tensions grew that would eventually lead to WWI, and citizenry previously enraptured by the displays of state-directed competition at the international exhibitions were attracted to a venue in which the performance and effort of the individual was the central focus. The Games, particularly in the emergence of the marathon as the showcase event, became the preferred location for the performance of active masculi

A brief historical review of Olympic urbanization

Description

Recent decades have seen an increased interest from the world's major cities to bid for international sporting events and to use them as agents for urban transformation. In this paper the particular focus is that of urban development driven by the preparation for the Olympic Summer Games. Starting with Coubertin's utopian concept for the creation of a 'modern Olympia', Olympic urbanization has been developing for over a century. The result is that in various cities with often diverse urban patterns and cultures, the Games have left very different impacts on the local environment. This paper outlines the history and changes in urbanization within those cities that have acted as hosts during the modern Olympic period (1896-2012). It also discusses key factors in connection with the creat
