Webinar “Building bridges within and outside the history of sport”, Program Spring 2022, University of Lausanne

The Centre for Olympic Studies & the Globalisation of Sport of the University of Lausanne and its director Prof. Patrick Clastres are pleased to invite you to the webinar Building bridges within and outside the history of sport ((see attached pdf). Each seminar will take place in English, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm Zurich hour, and will include a presentation of the thesis (45mn), a talk by a discussant (15mn) and a question and answer session (45mn).

The CEOGS/UNIL seminar aims to bring together PhDs who have recently defended their thesis in the history of sport across the continental distances that separate them. It also aims to allow them to exchange with more experienced researchers, who will be their discussants, and with an international audience of listeners, and thus to make their work better known on a global scale in a convivial atmosphere. This webinar will provide a space for dialogue between national historiographies that often misunderstand each other and that are correlated to different disciplinary fields (history, international relations, political sciences, sport and body movement sciences, colonial and post-colonial studies, gender studies, subaltern studies, cultural studies, visual studies, area studies…).

Finally, the sessions will be built around the virtuous circle that must link empirical approaches, concepts and theories of history. Particular attention will be paid to the internal and external criticism of sources, to the articulation between the narrative that these sources allow and the historical contexts that encompass it, and to the singularity of the history of sport in relation to other forms and objects of historical writing. 

Our collective ambition will be to contribute to bringing the history of sport out of its isolation and give it its rightful place in the historiography of contemporary societies: a place that is neither marginal nor central.

To follow the webinar, please register with Raphaël Benbouhou: raphael.benbouhou@unil.ch. A Zoom link with the access code will be provided to follow the conference.
