Since it became an object of mass culture in the 1920s, football has constantly faced the issues of diversity and identity in France and Germany. Exploring positions held and parts played by foreigners and /or nationals with an immigration background in football as a sport activity and an entertainment industry appears very productive in a French-German context, especially because on both sides of the Rhine the respective definition of the Nation was founded on divergent principles.
The Colloquium will be structured in two sections. Section 1 will be focussed on diversity in professional football as covered by the media. Section 2 will adress the questions concerning diversity in amateur football.
This Junior Colloquium aims to arouse the interest of PhD students, Post-doc Students or Master Students focussing their research on immigrants culture and sport culture (football) in France and/or in Germany.
