    Call for Participants | International Football History Conference 2022 | City Football Academy, Manchester City Football Club, November 18–19, 2022.

    The inaugural International Football History Conference was staged in 2017 and proved popular with leading academics, early career researchers, football historians and students. That was followed in 2018 & 2019 by further enjoyable conferences. Due to Covid we had to cancel our 2020 & 2021 conferences but now we're back. This year the conference promises to be significant, with world leading research presented, while also providing networking opportunities, as well as the potential for collaborations.

    Call for Papers | The Future of Football: Mapping Progress and Alternatives | A hybrid symposium hosted by the Social Identities and Inequalities Research Group at Solent University, June...

    As European football continues to expand into new global territories, emergent debates concerning the future of the game have revealed new questions, new challenges, and new opportunities to those studying the politics, culture, economics, and sociology of the game in all its different forms. We would also like to extend an invitation to scholars working within the field of critical football studies to submit papers that speak to emerging debates.

    Call for Papers | “The origins and evolution of professional football clubs from a management and organizational history perspective”. A session at the European Business History Association 2022 Congress,...

    Our aim is to study the origins and evolution of professional football clubs from a management and organizational history approach. Studying the football industry from a business history perspective is not just relevant and important, but also allows participation in several of the debates open in business and economics fields, including the role played by consumers in the shaping and evolution of an industry; the evolution of an industry toward a structure with an ‘economics of superstars’ character and its consequences, and more.

    Call for Papers | “Sports and Soccer in Mediterranean Literatures, Arts, and Cultures”, a panel at the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 2022 | Baltimore, MA, March 10–13, 2022....

    This panel seeks to explore the gaze that humanistic inquiry provides on soccer. What can the humanities tell us about soccer that social sciences, business, or sport studies cannot? The panel will contribute to defining how the humanities study a multifaceted and multicultural phenomenon such as soccer, which is deeply connected to several pressing contemporary matters—such as migration, national identities, and gender equality.

    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. 

    Call for Papers | “It’s (not) just a game: Football’s evolving culture” – Football Collective Conference 2020 | Portsmouth, November 26–27, 2020. Call ends September 11, 2020

    The committee of the 2020 Football Collective Conference invites researchers, practitioners and scholars to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation. We invite proposals for oral presentations, posters/exhibits, and workshops/symposiums. The conference is designed to offer opportunities for all to present research, research ideas, potential projects, and innovative methods of data collection or public engagement.

    Call for Papers | Colloquium: “Beyond the Back Page: Readings of Sports Photography” | Royal Holloway, Egham, Surrey, June 5, 2020. Calls ends February 28, 2020

    Photographs of sport, and of its most popular athletes, have long been essential not only to sports reporting but also to the commercial exploitation of professional sport. To coincide with our forthcoming exhibition of the football photography of the photojournalist Peter Robinson, this colloquium aims to contribute to a scholarly and critical engagement with the relationship between photography and sport.
