Aesthetics & Football…Beautiful

Connell and Mick will be presenting at the upcoming:

The Beautiful Game: The Poetics and Aesthetics of Soccer in Transnational Perspective | University of Basel, June 30-July 2, 2016

Our paper will be titled:

“Caveman stuff”: Ireland’s Soccer Struggle with Identity, Style and Success

In the paper we will be analysing, discussing and playing with notions and questions of style and success of the Republic of Ireland National Men’s soccer team. This will hinge on an analysis of identity and how it informs and shapes the perception of Irish football both home and away.

Should be fun.
