Call for Papers and Panels

We feel that it is vital for this event to be inter-disciplinary in outlook and we therefore encourage submissions from educationalists, historians, sociologists, cultural theorists and political scientists.  We also welcome contributions from relevant stakeholders, bodies and organisations.

We welcome submissions for panels or papers with a basis in (but not limited to) the following themes relating to prejudice and football:

  • Homophobia
  • Sectarianism
  • Sexism
  • Attitudes towards the Disabled
  • Class-based Prejudice
  • Fan Culture and Prejudice
  • We particularly welcome papers on how education, formal and informal, and its relationship to prejudice and football

We would also ask that any presentation and/or panel ensure that some thought is given to possible solutions, initiatives, et al regarding their topic.This will also assist the various break out sessions that will take place on the day.

Word limit for all proposals is 350 words.

We look forward to hearing from you and ask you to note that the deadline is Friday 5th August 2016 with replies sent out at the end of that month.Email address for submissions – footballeducationprejudice@gmail.com
