International Football History Conference 6-7 June 2019
The third annual International Football History Conference will take place at the City Football Academy, Manchester City Football Club this year and will be held over two days (6 and 7 June 2019). There is a fantastic collection of papers being presented with contributions from leading academics from across the globe including many leaders in their field.
Papers focusing on football’s origins, race, discrimination, identity, the World Cup, gender, and issues within football (including football of all codes) will be presented (a draft list of presenters and topics will be posted soon).
Conference organiser Dr Gary James has been pleased with the interest: “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 by another enjoyable conference. This year’s conference will build on those successes. It promises to be another significant conference with world leading research presented, while also providing networking opportunities, as well as the potential for collaborations.”
Conference organiser: Dr. Gary James, Honorary Research Fellow at De Montfort University
