Call for Book Chapter Proposals | World Cup! History, Politics, and Art of the Beautiful Game (Vernon Press). Call ends November 1, 2023
We invite submissions that discuss the Soccer “World Cups” as a historical, political, and aesthetic unit of analysis. How do World Cups shape a certain sense of national identity; how it is used for political purposes (as a state machine as well as resistance); what kind of artistic production surrounds them and what are their intended and non-intended meanings (from songs to advertisements to posters and poems, etc.); how are class, race, and gender relevant (or not) in all these processes.

New book on football in Egypt: Egypt’s Football Revolution: Emotion, Masculinity, and Uneasy Politics by Carl Rommel
In Egypt’s Football Revolution, Carl Rommel examines the politics of football as a space for ordinary Egyptians and state forces to negotiate a masculine Egyptian chauvinism. Basing his discussion on several years of fieldwork with fans, players, journalists, and coaches, he investigates the increasing attention paid to football during the Mubarak era; its demise with the 2011 uprisings and 2012 Port Said massacre, which left seventy-two fans dead; and its recent rehabilitation.
