Soccer as the Beautiful Game: Football's Artistry, Identity & Politics International Conference
The Hofstra Cultural Center and the Hofstra University Department of History present Soccer as the Beautiful Game: Football's Artistry, Identity & Politics from April 10 - 13, 2014. In anticipation of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Hofstra University is proud to host an international conference that explores the historical, political, economic and humanitarian impact of soccer-- including the awarding of an honorary degree to soccer legend Pelé. Over the past 20 years, the study of sport has become a well-developed subfield of many disciplines. Soccer’s meteoric rise in popularity during the 20th century continues to fascinate scholars around the world.
