Nordic Network for Sport History

Time: November 25-26, 2021
Location: Örebro University and/or digital

The Nordic Sports History Network brings together researchers interested in sports history from the Nordic region. In collaboration with the Swedish Society for Sports History, we are now opening up for contributions to the 2021’s meeting. We aim to meet physically but will also enable remote/digital presentations. The purpose of the conference is to present and discuss newly completed, ongoing and planned sport history projects targeting the Noridc context. Sports and history should be broadly interpreted and may, for example, include humanistic and social science perspectives on sports, body culture and physical activity.

Participation is free of charge and during the meeting, simple refreshments/Swedish fika will be offered. (In case of great interest, cost for this may be added). Each participant is responsible for accommodation and other related costs. Please note the different deadlines for presenters and participants.
