Program is here! Official heroes and contested guerrillas: The role models of football fans’ patriotism | Webinar, April 1, 2022.
The concept of guerrilla patriotism makes it possible to analyse not only the use of official national heroes by fans but also controversial figures who evoke strong reactions among others – support or rejection. The webinar aims to identify the figures which are perceived as patriotic role-models or anti-role-models by football fans. We want to initiate the discussion to include examples from all over the world. Reflecting on them will allow us to analyse the role such figures play in the national discourse of football stadiums.
Known as a football-passionate nation comparable to Brazil, Turkey has enjoyed important successes in the world arena, such as the third place in the 2002 World Cup, the semi-final in Euro 2008, and Galatasaray’s UEFA Cup and Super Cup victories in 2000. In the webinar, organized by Vrije Universiteit Brussel and University of Huddersfield, this unique football country will be discussed through different aspects that concern social sciences.
