Dr. Daniel Burdsey is a Reader and Deputy Head of School (Research and Enterprise) in the School of Sport and Service Management at the University of Brighton, UK. His research focuses on the sociology of race, ethnicity and popular culture. It is linked fundamentally by its central theme of qualitative observational research on ethnicities as lived in public cultures/spaces, and emphasises notions of social justice, sociological intervention and academic activism. Much of his work over the last 15 years has focused on British Asian experiences in sport and his current research explores the role of physical culture among older members of British Asian communities. Dan has also spent a decade investigating race, whiteness and the English seaside, culminating in his second monograph, Race, Place and the Seaside: Postcards from the Edge (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016). Dan is well-known for his work on racism and anti-racism in English football, and this continues to be a prominent area within his research. He is the author/editor of five books and his sixth, a co-edited volume entitled Transforming Sport, will be published by Routledge in 2018.
