Formatted Abstract/Summary
In the Introduction to this book, we created a tripartite conceptualization of the relationship between history making and the digital era. It provided a hermeneutic device to position contributions from sport historians, to group their ideas based on similarities or allegiances as much as to separate their perspectives around conceptual differences, and as a way of acknowledging the complexity of representing the past in this particular historical moment. In creating this conceptualization, the limitations are obvious. There is the slippage between the categories of digital history as approaches cross the porous membranes that we have created, and the impermanence of digital tools, devices, and social media will probably render these categories redundant very quickly as the digital world continually evolves. Nevertheless, in this Conclusion, we extend the discussion about our tripartite conceptualization—Digital History and the Archive, Digital History as Archive, and Digital History is History—by adding muscles to the skeleton created in the Introduction and see what happens to history making when the muscles of digital history are flexed.
