Call for Papers on Football in Africa

Politique Africaine seeks articles on football in Africa

For this special issue of Politique Africaine, we seek articles that explicitly tackle the strong, yet often ambiguous relationships between football and politics in Africa whether experienced in South Africa, elsewhere on the African continent, or in African communities around the world.

Contributions may range from examinations of the quotidian politics of football to analyses of the international political economies of football; they may examine local teams, or global mega-events such as the African Cup of Nations or the FIFA World Cup; they may analyze transnational dynamics, or national peculiarities in the organization of football and its public support.

Papers can be written in French, English or Portuguese.

Please send an abstract of your paper of about 250 words to the coordinators no later than 15th June 2009.
You will be notified if your contribution has been accepted for the submission of a full paper by 15th July 2009.
Submissions of the full paper versions (7,500 words) are due on 1st October 2009.

For further information, please contact the coordinators:
