The 12th congress of the European Committee for Sports History will be hosted by the University of Southern Brittany, Lorient, France, 20th-22nd September 2007. Congress participants will take part in a reflection on the artistic status of sport, as well as its relation to and representation in the arts (including literature). Some artistic representations have no intention but to reflect some “reality”, whereas some other representations pursue a variety of specific goals. Moreover, whether in the arts or as a consequence of the moral qualities it allows and constrains those who take part to display, sport is widely believed to be the vehicle of a social ethic as well, making it necessary to envisage “reality” and “construction” dialectically. 200-word abstracts on the type of “reality” such artistic “constructions” mediate, in a critical, diachronic, possibly dialectical and cross-community perspective should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than April, 30th 2007.
