Call for Papers | Football presidents: towards a typology of political cultures | Webinar, September 15, 2022. Call ends April 30, 2022
We are expecting to receive proposals from different contexts to have an international panorama on different political cultures and its leaderships.

Call for Papers | Football in Turkey 2021 | Online conference April 28, 2021. Call ends March 26, 2021
