Dr Gorman authored a Special Issue of Sports in Society: Cultures, Commerce, Media, Politics with Dean Lusher and Keir Reeves, titled “The Biggest Game in Town: An Analysis of the AFL’s Vilification Policy”. The special issue is one of the outputs of an Australian Research Council Linkage project examining Indigenous and multicultural diversity and masculinity in the Australian Football League: a project that has provided the AFL with key recommendations for improving the quality of education programs dealing with diversity across the sport.
In 2015, the Award was won by Dr Matthew Chrulew for his outstanding contribution to the field of philosophical ethology.
