This site houses the newly formed Professional Wrestling Studies Association. Our purpose is to bring together scholars and fans from around the world to discuss, analyze, and critique different aspects of professional wrestling.
The PWSA welcomes scholarship on different theoretical and methodological perspectives on the past, present, and/or future professional wrestling related phenomena: wrestlers, federations, social media use, fans, and more.
On this site, you will find essays on pro wrestling, collections of popular and academic works (including course materials), and more information about PWSA, including submission guidelines, contact information, and short introductions to the site’s editors and contributors.
