[Commlist] New book: Sport, Film and National Culture

Tue Nov 03 21:02:00 GMT 2020

*/SPORT, FILM AND NATIONAL CULTURE/*(Routledge, 2020), edited by Seán Crosson

I'm delighted to announce the publication of the new collection, /*Sport, Film and National Culture*/**(Routledge, 2020), edited by Seán Crosson (Huston School of Film & Digital Media, NUI Galway).

This is the first collection dedicated to examining the intersection of sport, film and national culture. Covering films of all types, from Hollywood blockbusters to regional documentaries and newsreels, /Sport, Film, and National Culture/considers how filmic depictions of sport have configured and informed a wide range of distinctive national cultures, societies and identities. Featuring case studies from eleven national contexts across six continents – including North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania – it reveals the common and contrasting approaches that have emerged within sport cinema in differing national contexts. Further information (and sample materials) re the collection available at: <>

NUI Galway’s Moore Institute will host a webinar to mark the launch of /Sport, Film and National Culture /on *November 19 at 4pm (GMT). The webinar will feature most contributors to the collection and will take place on Zoom; you can register to attend at:*
