Biography

Dr Jorge Knijnik is an Associate Professor in the School of Education and a researcher in the Institute for Culture and Society. Jorge’s overarching research interests focus on topics of Education (including Health and Physical Education), social justice, sport 4 development, gender, multiculturalism, football fandom, curriculum and social inclusion. Jorge has two established areas of significant achievements in research, teaching and community involvement which address those issues: sport in society and physical education.  As a social and education worker, Jorge spent considerable time in the slums of his home country (Brazil) where there are extensive and systematic human rights violations – including serious child abuse – introducing systematic initiatives to improve sanitation, minimise health problems (including sexuality programs), and promote accessible sport and exercise programs as alternatives to self-destructive or socially dysfunctional behaviors. His community and pedagogical work has been acknowledged by two major prizes: the 2009Building the Gender Equality awarded by the Brazilian Research Council, UNESCO and UN-WOMEN, and a 2014 Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning, presented by the Ministry of Education (Australia).

 My research interests range from sport in society, culture and history, to gender and human rights in education, to physical education pedagogies, to drama studies and fandom culture. My current research examines the socialisation process within football fans in Greater Western Sydney and how football fandom has the potential to make a significant contribution to community cohesion and regeneration in the area. I am also involved in a number of projects looking at the political and cultural contradictory legacies of sports mega events in Brazil.
