Football and the Boundaries of History : Critical Studies in Soccer Hardback

Edited by Brenda Elsey, Stanislao G. Pugliese


The essays in this volume use football to create a dialogue between history and other disciplines, including art criticism, philosophy, and political science.

The study of football provides fertile ground for interdisciplinary initiatives and this volume explores the disciplinary boundaries that are shifting "beneath our feet." Traditional disciplines in the humanities and social sciences have come to embrace diverse research methodologies and the increased scholarly attention to football over the past decade reflects both the startling popularity of the sport and the trends in historical scholarship that have been termed the "cultural," "interpretive," or "linguistic" turns.

This volume includes work on gender, sexuality, and ethnicity, which have challenged disciplinary fault-lines.
