The Hegemonic Triumvirate--Ideologies, Discourses, and Habitus in Sport and Physical Education: Implications and Suggestions
Fernandez-Balboa, Juan-Miguel; Muros, Beatriz
Quest, v58 n2 p197-221 May 2006
In this paper, we introduce the concept of "the hegemonic triumvirate" (HT)--a powerful system of "reality" construction resulting from the interrelation of dominant ideologies, habitus, and discourses. Then, after analyzing HT's components and some of their interrelations within the contexts of sport and physical education (PE), we examine some of the myths and fallacies of the HT in sport. We also unveil the vicious cycle of HT and PE and explain some of its reasons and implications. Lastly, we propose viable critical pedagogical alternatives for teachers, teacher educators, coaches, and others interested in contesting HT and promoting universal dignity though PE and sport.
