Type of congress
International congress with papers accepted in Portuguese, English, Spanish and French.
The year 2012 marks the XXX Summer Olympic Games in London. 2012 also commemorates the centenary of Portugal’s first participation in the Olympic Games (in Stockholm in 1912). To mark these two events the I Congress of History and Sport will be dedicated to the Olympic movement and its different perspectives, including sport, social, economic, political, religious, media, culture and others.
The Grupo de História e Desporto (Group for History and Sport – GHD) gathers researchers from several institutions, with the main goal of promoting cooperation, research and studies in the field of sport history. The GHD also organizes events for History and Sport at the national and international levels. In the Portuguese case, the interest in the history of sport is an important research focus. The GHD also organizes an annual congress, whose goal is the discussion and the production of knowledge in the various aspects of the intersection of history and sport. The theme for the 2012 congress is the Olympics.
