First Keynote Speaker Announcement

We are delighted to announce that the first (provisionally) confirmed keynote panel member for  the football, education and prejudice conference is author, writer and academic David Goldblatt.

David has researched and written about football, in particular football governence and social justice within the game, for many years and recently won the 2015 William Hill sports book of the year award for his work ‘The Game of Our Lives’, described by the chairman of the judging panel, John Gaustad as “a serious, insightful yet compellingly readable book on a subject that affects the lives of everyone in the country, be they football fans or not” (http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2015/nov/26/david-golblatt-the-game-of-our-lives-william-hill-sports-boof-of-the-year).

We are sure that David will provide a unique and interesting contribution to the day and look forward to welcoming him to Glasgow in October.
