This interdisciplinary conference, scheduled to take place during the 2019 Women’s World Cup and hosted the Dublin School of Creative Arts at Technological University Dublin, focuses on the art and aesthetics of all aspects of football in its various codes. In particular, it explores the aesthetic discourses surrounding football in both its formal and informal practices. The conference will critically analyse the visual culture, performance and rhetoric of the game from perspectives including gender, language, museology and design.
