“Football, Politics and Popular Culture” will bring together interdisciplinary football researchers, academics and students to share research findings, interests, stories, and methods, in order to develop better research and collaboration across the Collective. We will also host guests from outside of the academy. In this conference, we therefore particularly welcome papers that address (but are not limited to) football and the following:
 
  • Migration
  • Racism
  • Islamophobia/anti-Muslim racism
  • Ethno-national formation
  • Conflict (Ethno-national, Ideological, Sectarian etc.)
  • Sectarianism
  • Identities

  • Gender and Sexualities
  • Fan culture

  • Other themes relevant to the Football Collective themes
