Research

Professor McGannon's research program advances the use of qualitative research methodologies to understand sport and physical activity behaviour. This work is broadly grounded in social constructionsim and Cultural Sport Psychology, focusing on the socio-cultural influences of sport and physical activity participation. One stream of this research explores the social construction of self-identity, sport and physical activity. A second stream involves critical interpretations of sport and physical activity and the implications for psychological experiences and health. Professor McGannon also studies the media as a cultural site that constructs self-identity within the context of sport, physical activity participation and health.​ The foregoing is explored using theories (e.g., discursive psychology, narrative inquiry) and qualitative methodologies (e.g., discourse analysis, narrative analysis). The goal of this research is to produce knowledge that contributes toward creating space for people as cultural beings in physical activity contexts to improve health and well-being.
