Save the Date Mobilities Workshop

More than just a game

Mobilities, infrastructures & imaginaries of global sports events:

Organizers: Noel Salazar, Christiane Timmerman, Johan Wets, Thursday 8th (9am-5pm) and Friday 9th (9am-3pm) October 2015

Venue: Hof van Liere, Prinsstraat 13b, University of Antwerp, Belgium.


This intensive workshop aims to stimulate an interdisciplinary discussion about the issues involved in the planning and staging of global sports events, as well as the legacies they leave behind from a mobilities perspective. It will consist of in-depth discussion sessions on the basis of pre-circulated papers. We are delighted to have a dozen of the best and brightest mobilities and mega-events, scholars from a range of countries spanning multiple continents. A variety of disciplinary approaches will converge at this event, with participants coming from Anthropology, Communication Studies, Geography, Olympic Studies, Political Science, and Sociology.
