Gary Osmond’s “Decolonizing Dialogues: Sport, Resistance, and Australian Aboriginal Settlements,” is the winner of the Journal of Sport History ’s Best Article Award for 2019. Osmond’s article was published in a special issue guest edited by Murray Phillips, Russell Field, Christine O’Bonsawin, and Janice Forsyth on “Indigenous Resurgence, Regeneration, and Decolonization through Sport History.”

Osmond’s piece offers scholars a better understanding of sport as a “site of agency and resistance for many Aboriginal people.” His focus on “everyday forms of resistance” and the concept of “hidden transcripts” challenges scholars to think more broadly about resistance in sport. Osmond’s writing is clear, accessible, and enjoyable – but it is also complex, layered, reflexive, and chockful of treasures. We congratulate Osmond for his excellent contribution to the field of sport history.
