The handbook, featuring 58 chapters over 610 pages, written by leading figures within the field (including UMD PCSers present and past: Shannon Jette; Jake Bustad; Bryan Clift; Josh Newman; Ryan King-White; and, Michael Silk) has recently been published.

It is divided into nine parts (Groundings; Practices; Subjectified Bodies; Institutionalized Bodies; Experiential Bodies; Spaces; Contexts and Sites of Embodied Practice; Methodological Contingencies; Politics and Praxis).

The intention of the handbook is to contribute to the on-going formulation of the PCS project. As such, the various contributions to the handbook elucidate PCS as “a site of both internal and external struggle for precisely what it [PCS] should and could be now and, perhaps more importantly, in the future” (Silk, Andrews, & Thorpe, 2017, p. 2).

The handbook is available from Routledge here: Routledge Handbook of Physical Cultural Studies.
