D. Leavis in her proto-Cultural Studies classic Fiction and the Reading Public, first published in 1932. R. Leavis’s claim that Hoggart was merely repeating work that his wife had done twenty-five years before, Hoggart’s book, as apparent from our discussion, extended to leisure themes beyond reading and popular literature – both publications and entertainments, as Hoggart’s subtitle indicates.

This tendency risks neglecting the ordinariness of sport participation, viewing and following. It is important that the cultural study of sport also produces work focused on the ordinary everyday practices of sport if we are to gain an understanding of how sport fits into contemporary patterns of community life and of the cultural meanings arising from the sport-supporting experience of the ‘ordinary’ sports fan. Sport and the ‘common culture’ The acceptance of the ordinariness of culture within Cultural Studies is most often attributed to the pioneering cultural commentary and analysis of Raymond Williams.

We consider a culturalist temperament towards the sport/nature nexus and ask whether this temperament has currency within contemporary sporting cultures based on thrill seeking. While writers like Scruton emphasise the necessary link between culture and nature it is important to distinguish between the two terms.

Culture alters nature as humanity impacts upon the environment and animal species.
