President’s Forum: A New NASSH Exchange Platform

By Kevin Wamsley

Beginning with a contribution by Maureen Smith later this week, we are launching a new platform for NASSH members to exchange views and commentaries on matters of concern and relevance in our discipline. The “President’s Forum: Taking Charge of the Future of Sport History at Academic Institutions,” provides a stage for various contributors to offer extended commentary on specific aspects of this important issue. We hope to stimulate debate by adding a comment function to the main contributions. You are encouraged to share your thoughts on the issues raised in the Forum contributions.

Kevin Wamsley is the NASSH President and the Academic Vice President and Provost at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. He can be reached at
