Fall 2011 Lineup

The schedule page has been updated with our new fall schedule, our fourth semester of FSF sessions! On Friday, September 23, at 3pm EDT we will be discussing Brenda Elsey’s Citizens and Sportsmen: Fútbol and Politics in Twentieth-Century Chile. Dr. Elsey will visit Michigan State on September 22-23 to give a public lecture and host a seminar for graduate students.

On November 9, FSF will host a session on “Soccer in the Classroom.” Peter Alegi, Tom McCabe, Steven Apostolov, and Alon Raab will lead the discussion. This will be an excellent opportunity to exchange syllabi, sources, reading lists, and teaching perspectives. Our discussion will not necessarily center on soccer-specific courses; if you would like to include a unit/section/lecture on soccer in your humanities or social science course, be sure to join the discussion.
