    Call for Participation | “Central and Eastern Europe Football Fans’ Identities: What Happened over 30 Years?” | Webinar, September 24, 2021

    More than 30 years after the fall of communism in Central and Eastern Europe, enough time has elapsed to allow researchers to provide detailed answers to one question: how have the region’s football fans’ identities transformed and what these evolutions can teach us about their respective societies. The dialectical analysis of disruptions and continuities with the recent past will shed light on several aspects of fans’ identities.

    Call for papers | “Reflections on football. Contributions from studies on the media, journalism and communication“. Special Issue of Mediapolis – Journal of Communication, Journalism and Public Sphere |...

    Appearing in the 19th century and popularised in the 20th century, football has reached the new millennium as a trend and behaviour setter, assuming itself as a complex “integral social factor” worthy of profound reflection and research by the Social, Human and Communication Sciences. The challenge of this issue is to demonstrate how football can and should be the subject of research in the academic and scientific sphere, given its social plasticity and appeal to interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary approaches.

    Call for Papers | “Global Maradona: Man, Athlete, Celebrity, Idol, Hero, Myth”. Special Issue of Eracle Journal of Sport and Social Sciences | Call ends April 10, 2021

    It is difficult to find in the pantheon of champions of sports history a person who has received the same public attention as that of Diego Armando Maradona. Always on stage, always attracting everyone's attention, never an ordinary man. He was a great footballer, a great sportsman. His biography was full of extraordinary achievements and falls in sport and in life; he was a celebrity, fully integrated in the field of spectacular and commercialized sport.
