The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) is delighted to welcome a conference organised by Dr Conor Curran, the British Society of Sports History and the Irish Research Council.
The conference will provide a discussion forum for an historical and contemporary analysis of sport, education and society in an international context. It will examine sport’s historical and contemporary role and place within education with a view towards the development of a research network and the publication of a special edited collection on the subject.
Themes will include:
- The history of sport and education
- Sporting bodies and educational institutions
- Tradition and prestige in sport and education
- Nationalism, sport and education
- Religion and sport in education
- Class issues within sport and education
- Educational policy and sport
- Competitive and non-competitive sport within education
- Centres of sporting achievement
- Gender bias
- Conflict within sport and education.
More details including the final conference programme will be available later in 2019 on the PRONI website.
