The email list is used as a forum for issues and debates concerning philosophy of sport and for expressing thoughts about the association itself. It can also be used for requesting information to colleagues all over the world (about conferences, new books, courses, ballots, travel arrangements, etc) rather than using faxes or conventional post.
Who can subscribe?
The list is set up for members of the International Association for the Philosophy of Sport only. If you are a paid-up member, then follow the instructions set out below. However, if you are not a member and would like to subscribe to the email list, then becoming a member of IAPS requires a very modest payment of fees.
