On Thursday, December 11, at 2pm Eastern U.S. Time (-5 GMT, i.e. 18.00 CET), the Football Scholars Forum, a fútbol think tank based at Michigan State University, is holding an online discussion on the state of the women’s game internationally, both on the pitch and in humanities and social science scholarship.
