The Directing Council of CESH on the behalf of all participants express their sincere thanks to Daniele Serapiglia and Rahul Kumar for the successful organisation of the 24th CESH Congress / ISHPES Congress at the Universidade Nova Lisboa.
139 papers, 3 keynotes in a hybrid conference… and a sensation to resume scientific relations with international colleagues.
Thank you so much for having challenged the situation and managed to host the joint CESH/ISHPES congress during three fabulous days in Lisbon.
Our CESH Fellow, Arnd Krüger, one of the founders of CESH and its first Presindent, coordinates a special number of Materiales para la Historia del Deporte, about “Mind the gap! The role of suppression, purges, and rejection in sports history and sports historiography”.
Works into the context of memory studies are welcome: Under-researched, forgotten or suppressed events, case studies, systematic studies with no limited time frame and related to sports in a very wide sense, from physical exercise, dance, gymnastics or sporting leisure club activities to sport for the handicapped or elite Olympic sports.

Students and Early Career Scholars who are taking part to the joint CESH/ISHPES Congress 2021 in Lisbon are invited to participate in a seminar on “Sport History and Social Sciences: exploiting a fruitful relationship,” with Dr. Nuno Domingos, Portuguese anthropologist.
The event will be held in a mixed mode (online and in-person) at the Institute of Contemporary History (IHC) — NOVA School of Social Sciences and Humanities, on 13 September 2021.
