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.
