The international 3-day conference coincides with and complements the 2012 London Olympic Games and Cultural Olympiad but is not intended simply to celebrate the Olympics ideal or, indeed, to deal exclusively with the material culture of the Olympic Games. Rather, it will be a timely opportunity to embrace research in the material culture of sport in all its national and international manifestations from any period, and from and across various academic disciplines including art, architecture and design, art and design history, material culture studies, history, sports studies, film studies, museum and heritage studies, media and cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, gender studies, economics, and politics.
The event will be hosted by the University of Brighton, UK., 10-13 September 2012.
