  • ISSN: 2045-5879
  • E-ISSN: 2045-5887


The goal of this editorial is to provide a rationale for this Special Issue on Olympic images. Additionally, it provides context for my approach to these specific artefacts and explains the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to them. My preview of the submissions attempts to orient the reader to the organization of the pieces and identifies the intended outcomes for the reader.
