New publication on Olympic legacies

Along with two colleagues, Elizabeth Booth and Charles Bladen, I have edited a collection of papers from our Olympic Legacy conference held last year at the University of Greenwich. The collection contains seven substantial, refereed papers on Olympic legacy issues, including information about London 2012, Beijing 2008, Torino 2006, the Cultural Olympiad, volunteering and an overview of the meanings of ‘olympic legacy’.  You can download the publication for free by clicking on the image below.  If you would like a hard copy for your library or reference use, please leave a comment on this post and I will get in touch.

  1. Nice set up James. I particularly like the front of it, which is that clever Greenwich blend of the traditional, stable yet “not going anywhere,” with the new, progressive yet “haven’t arrived yet” all in one striking cover. I heard recent rumours in academic circles about the possibility of a collector’s T-shirt to go with these proceedings. Any more info on this?

    Thanks for all your awesome contributions to the greatest blog that ever lived, which can be found at

    I’m with you all the way by the way with this”up the climate” thing. Regards, Noel.

  2. Thanks Noel, good to know you’re on board with the climate thing.
    T-shirt rumours unfounded, but key fobs more than possible in the near future.
