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.
The anthology Sport, Film and National Culture will be the first major single volume collection to survey the significance and interaction of these three prominent cultural forces internationally, through in-depth case-studies of the historical and contemporaneous relationship between sport, film and national culture; interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives are welcome.
