CFP: Philosophy of Sport?

Here is a call for papers on the philosophy of sport. Philosophy of sport is rather new and was started in the 1960's. I have been seeing philosophy of sport mentioned quite a bit on the internet lately but am very ignorant of it's nature myself.  The philosophy of sport definition from Penn State:

In the philosophy of sport, students examine the nature and values of human movement utilizing the nonempirical methods of philosophers. Areas of emphasis include:
  • the ethics of sport
  • mind-body holism and its implications for professional practice
  • the significance of tacit knowledge
  • comparisons of sport with art
  • the unique values of games and play
Some of the faculty have been active in the founding and early years of their respective professional organizations: the North American Society for Sport History and the International Association for the Philosophy of Sport (originally the Philosophic Society for the Study of Sport).


International Association for the Philosophy of Sport in conjunction with
the APA Eastern Division Meeting December 27-30, 2011, in Washington, D.C.**
