Call for Papers | History, Sports, and Nationalism in Ghana/Africa, Zoom Conference | April 2024. Call ends July 30, 2023
It is clear that all major scholarly works on sports history in Ghana are skewed heavily toward Azumah Nelson and boxing, to the neglect of other boxing greats, and with little or no attention to all the other sports in Ghana. Consequently, this project seeks to highlight and document the history of sports in Ghana and its contribution to economics, nationalism, and national development. Contributions must all be original research work following the strict rubric of research. We invite original research contributions to this project.
