Research interests

Dr Anthony Bush is a Senior Lecturer in the Department for Health at the University of Bath. In recognition of excellence in leadership in learning and teaching in the University, Dr Bush was the winner of the Leadership in Learning and Teaching Award 2016. Dr Bush is a former professional badminton player and has over 25 years of coaching experience. He is currently the Director of Learning and Teaching in the Department for Health, formerly the Director of Studies for the BA in Sport and Social Sciences (2012-2015) and is a member of the Physical Cultural Studies research group (PCS at Bath). Through the development and strategic dissemination of potentially empowering forms of knowledge and understanding, PCS at Bath seeks to illuminate, and intervene into, sites of physical cultural injustice and inequity. Dr Bush is an interdisciplinary scholar specialising on issues concerning the physically active body in a myriad of spaces and sites including, but not limited to, the elite sporting context. His work pushes at the ontological, epistemological and methodological boundaries of that which counts as the critical, social science oriented study of sport and physical activity. As such his work engages with a variety of methodological approaches that engage the empirical (including ethnography and autoethnography, participant observation, discourse and media analysis, and contextual analysis) and deploy an equally fluid theoretical vocabulary, utilising concepts and theories from a variety of disciplines (including cultural studies, economics, history, health, education, media studies, performance studies, philosophy, sociology, and urban studies) in engaging and interpreting the particular aspect of physical culture under scrutiny.
