Conference: Football and Communities Across Codes
Monday 4th February – Wednesday 6th February 2013
Call for Presentation:
The word "football" conjures up images of very different types of games depending on where one happens to be in the world. But no matter whether players kick a goal, score a try, or score a touchdown on the field, each football code is underpinned by the dynamic interplay between clubs, players, governing institutions, fan communities, individual supporters and the broader social context in which they exist. The resulting relationships are characterised by complexity, conflict, controversy, commodification, and the perhaps most importantly, the (in)constancy of fans.

Extending the conversation begun in the special issue on incorporating noncanonical medieval literature in the classroom, the sessions proposed here will explore pedagogy and canonicity in the context in which we, as teachers, deal with it most often and most dramatically: the early British literary survey course. Each session will have 7 panelists, each with 8-10 minute papers and time for discussion.
