Call for Presentation:
The Global Project on Football and Communities aims to produce a more robust understanding of those dynamics by bringing together scholars, practitioners, fans and other members of sporting communities at the Communities Across Codes conference event in Sydney, Australia. The Antipodean location offers a prime opportunity to explore the dynamics of community with reference to the local codes of football: soccer, Aussie Rules Football, rugby league (NRL) and rugby union. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
From the local to the global – impact of sporting communities?
In order to facilitate inter-, cross- and multi-disciplinary dialogue, we welcome proposals for talks, academic papers, workshops, panel debates, fan community and practitioner interactions, performances, and exhibitions of creative work with a view to providing a platform for discussion and an opportunity to build a knowledge base in the field of sports and communities.
The Global Project on Football and Communities is a joint research project between Inter-Disciplinary.Net and the Manchester Metropolitan University (UK) Football Cluster.
