More Than Just A Game: the Legacy of the 1966 Football World Cup - Symposium

Senate House Library will host a one-day academic symposium that explores how England’s triumph in the 1966 World Cup marked a turning point for role of sport, and football in particular, in British cultural life.

Drawing upon rich library collections to highlight various strands of research, papers at the symposium will reflect upon Anglo-German relations; deconstructing the finances of a world cup; representation of women throughout the event, the politics inherent in an international competition and the impact the tournament had on culture and gender.
