Call for Papers | “Sport and Society in Crisis” – Twelfth International Conference on Sport & Society | University of Granada, Spain, June 24–25 2021. Call ends May 24,...
To support the range of options, and flexibility needed in our current climate, we will offer a blended conference experience. You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change. The choice to participate virtually could also be a moral decision – for the planet, for security, or when the financial burden of travel is too great.

In the field of sport studies in the Nordic region, important contributions have pointed to the persistence of gender as a key organising principle and symbolic practice, at both the elite and grassroots levels. The main focus of academic work on sport and in/exclusion has tended to focus on gender and/or ethnicity as the primary markers of difference and sameness. In this, questions of racism and coloniality have largely been overlooked, and left underexplored.
Call for Papers | Football in Turkey 2021 | Online conference April 28, 2021. Call ends March 26, 2021
The football world in Turkey presents complex peculiarities that are very difficult to understand for neutral observers. Born into the final years of the Ottoman Empire, football not only witnessed the birth of a new, modern nation-state, from day one, it became a vital part of Turkish modernism, along with other key concepts such as nationalism or secularism. Football has also become a battlefield for political, social and cultural divisions, which makes the case of Turkey even more appealing for football scholars.
