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.

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.

Call for Papers | Beyond the Big Five: Rethinking the Professionalisation of Football in Europe | Université de Lausanne, May 25–27, 2020. Call ends November 15, 2019
Conceived during an interdisciplinary project built in collaboration between the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Université de Lausanne (UNIL), which focused on professionalisation processes in Belgium and Switzerland, our ambition with this conference is to capture the varieties of football professionalisation across Europe, or rather all the several processes often mixed behind or beyond the word and the multiple definitions of “professionalisation”.
Call For Papers | Football Feminism – Global Governance Perspectives | The Symposium, Jean Monnet Center, NYU School Of Law, February 24–25, 2020. Call ends July 15, 2019
The Symposium will aim to illuminate and nuance the relationship between gender and power within the transnational regulatory system that governs football (with FIFA at its helm); to identify specific gendered implications of existing governance structures, rules and procedures; and to consider innovative ideas for feminist reform or revolution.
Call for Papers | “From Grassroots to hyper commodification”. The Football Collective Annual Conference | Sheffield, November 28–29, 2019. Call ends September 6, 2019
Drawing on research undertaken by members of the Football Collective, the 2019 Annual Conference will look to scrutinise the business of football to find solutions that will benefit clubs, their players, their fans and their local communities. This year's conference will also explore both the commercial and human benefits football can bring to the general population.

Call for Papers | “Football: Politics of the Global Game” | November 15–16, 2018, University of Warsaw. Call ends July 16, 2018
The Conference will focus on football as an important social institution playing a rising role in various fields of human activity, and thus contribute to the increased knowledge among scientists specialising in football, as well as to examine the connections between football and politics or broader - social sciences.
Call for Papers | “Challenging the Narrative” – Critical Thinking in Football | The Football Collective Conference 2018, Glasgow November 29–30 2018. Call ends September 7, 2018
The football collective conference theme for 2018 is challenging the narrative. We welcome papers and presentations that will challenge myths and misconceptions, commonly held attitudes and positions. As the gap between fans and bodies (including clubs) grows wider and financial division within the game becomes more entrenched, critical thinking about the game has never been more necessary.
