Call for Participation | Sport, Globalisation and Identity – Recent reflections on our publication | Webinar, November 24, 2020, 18:00 CET
Sport can be a vehicle for the expression of identity, and also a factor in the shaping of identity. In Sport, Globalisation and Identity: New Perspectives on Regions and Nations, edited by Jim O'Brien, Russell Holden, Xavier Ginesta, the complex interrelationships between nations, regions and states in the landscape of contemporary international sport, with a particular focus on identity, is explored.
This webinar will provide a global focus on sport and film, examining the critical role film has played in affirming the relationship between sport and national cultures internationally. Covering films of all types, from Hollywood blockbusters to regional documentaries and newsreels, Dr Crosson’s new book Sport, Film, and National Culture considers how filmic depictions of sport have configured and informed a wide range of distinctive national cultures, societies and identities.
