Call for Papers | Football, Education and Prejudice Conference | 20th October 2017, Glasgow

Football, Education and Prejudice is a one day conference that will focus on the forms, effects, and outcomes relating to how prejudice in sport, particularly football, manifest themselves.

We feel that it is vital for this event to be inter-disciplinary in outlook and we therefore encourage submissions from educationalists, historians, sociologists, cultural theorists and political scientists.  We also welcome contributions from relevant stakeholders, bodies and organisations.

We welcome submissions for panels or papers with a basis in (but not limited to) the following themes relating to prejudice and football:

  • LGBT
  • Sectarianism
  • Gender
  • Attitudes towards the Disabled
  • Class-based Prejudice
  • Fan Culture and Prejudice

We particularly welcome papers on how education, formal and informal, and its relationship to prejudice and football.

The deadline for abstracts is 11th August 2017. Papers should be the standard 250 words, presentations should be 20 minutes and panel proposals should consist of three speakers.

Unfortunately, we are not able to assist with accommodation, travel, conference fees, or associated costs. We can, however, offer advice on travel and suitable accommodation.

We are also looking for volunteers to lead and collate break out session feedback and discussion. Again, if interested, then don’t hesitate to contact us.

Email with abstracts.
