    Call for Papers | ‘The History of Sport in the Arab world’, a Special Issue of The International Journal of the History of Sport | Call ends February 28,...

    As Ottoman influence began to wane across the Arab world in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the resultant vacuum was filled by European powers intent on increasing their colonial empires. Sport played a significant role in this expansion, asserting European superiority while simultaneously inculcating within the native inhabitants what were deemed properly civilised behaviours. We welcome submissions from historians, sports scholars, and other researchers of individual articles that discuss, examine, or review the historical presence, place, and function of sport in Arab society.
