CFP: Conference on Sport, Conflict and Reconciliation, Liverpool 28.4.2012


Conference on Sport, Conflict and Reconciliation – Liverpool Hope University, Saturday 28 April 2012


Sport can be both a source of conflict and a means of promoting reconciliation and peace-building. This one-day conference aims to examine theoretical debate and practical approaches to the role of sport in relation to conflict and conflict resolution.

A particular interest of the conference lies in the area of the use of sport for purposes of conflict resolution, post-conflict reconstruction and rehabilitation, and peace-building. Prof. John Sugden, Professor of the Sociology of Sport at the Chelsea School, University of Brighton, will be giving a keynote address on this theme. In addition, the conference organisers will be aiming to organise at least one panel specifically on this theme, so we particularly welcome papers in this area.

However, we also welcome papers looking at other aspects of sport and conflict, and from any discipline, including geography, sociology, politics, economics, cultural studies, history, media studies, literature, and sports studies. Amongst the themes that could be considered are:

The conference is being organised by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies at Liverpool Hope University. The conference organisers are Dr Michael Holmes, Dr Liam O’Callaghan and Dr Joel Rookwood. The venue will be the Conference Centre, Liverpool Hope University, Hope Park campus, Taggart Avenue, Liverpool.

Paper proposals (title and an abstract of not more than 300 words) should be submitted to the Conference Secretary, Jane Reilly, at reillyj(AT)hope.ac.uk by 31 January 2012. We will provide initial notification to proposers by 17 February. Late submissions may be accepted if feasible.
