CFP: Sport and the Arts (France) (4/30/07; CESH, 9/20/07-9/22/07)

full name / name of organization:

The 12th congress of the European Committee for Sports History will be hosted
by the University of Southern Brittany, Lorient, France, 20th-22nd September
2007. Congress participants will take part in a reflection on the artistic
status of sport, as well as its relation to and representation in the arts
(including literature). Some artistic representations have no intention but to
reflect some "reality", whereas some other representations pursue a variety of
specific goals. Moreover, whether in the arts or as a consequence of the moral
qualities it allows and constrains those who take part to display, sport is
widely believed to be the vehicle of a social ethic as well, making it
necessary to envisage "reality" and "construction" dialectically. 200-word
abstracts on the type of "reality" such artistic "constructions" mediate, in a
critical, diachronic, possibly dialectical and cross-community perspective
should be e-mailed to not later than April, 30th 2007.
