Call for Participants | Football presidents: towards a typology of political cultures | Webinar (Teams), September 15–16, 2022
Back in April, idrottsforum.org published a Call for Papers for this webinar which intended to have an international panorama on different political cultures and its leaderships. Bringing scholars from different contexts, it was expected to foster research on football club presidents and their “styles of management”, as well as developing a broader understanding of different empirical cases to build a typology of football political cultures. This is the full program.
Call for Participants | Women’s Football as Precarious Work, online seminar feat. Dr. Alex Culvin | Wednesday, May 11, 2022, 17:00 to 18:30 GMT, by Zoom
The profile of women’s professional football is growing with games now screened on the BBC and Sky. Yet for most players, even at the highest level, women’s football involves short-term, precarious contracts, low pay, few benefits, bodily surveillance, delayed motherhood and disrupted personal lives. This timely seminar reveals the gendered precarity that increased professionalisation has brought and highlights the role played by players’ collective organisations in fighting for change.

Call for Papers | Playing for Nations and/or States: Cricket and Politics in South Asia | Webinar, September 14, 2022. Call ends June 15, 2022
Cricket like Bollywood is eulogized like a religion in South Asia and regarded as one of the most popular sports played in the region. Despite the popularity of the game and its ubiquitous relevance for the nation-states of South Asia, there has been a dearth of scholarly works to understand the game’s inexorable relationship with politics. This webinar is an effort to put the sports-politics nexus in South Asia on the global academic map.
CEVIPOL (Centre d'Etude de la Vie Politique) is a research center of the Philosophy and Social Sciences Department at the Université libre de Bruxelles. It specializes in political sociology and comparative politics, and one thematic axis is “Sports and Politics”, within which the current webinar series, “Sport and Societies”, is organised by Professor Jean-Michel De Waele.

We are expecting to receive proposals from different contexts to have an international panorama on different political cultures and its leaderships. Bringing scholars from different contexts, we hope to foster research on football club presidents and their “styles of management”. We also expect a broader understanding of different empirical cases to build a typology of football political cultures.
Call for Papers | Official heroes and contested guerrillas: The role models of football fans’ patriotism | Webinar, April 1, 2022. Call ends January 31, 2022
The concept of guerrilla patriotism makes it possible to analyse not only the use of official national heroes by fans but also controversial figures who evoke strong reactions among others - support or rejection. The webinar aims to identify the figures which are perceived as patriotic role-models or anti-role-models by football fans. We want to initiate the discussion to include examples from all over the world. Reflecting on them will allow us to analyse the role such figures play in the national discourse of football stadiums.
