The research group "Economy, Society, Innovation and Heritage" at the Institute for Contemporary History (University Nova of Lisbon) has decided to organize a conference dedicated to the relationship between: "Sport, Dictatorship and Fascism" in modern Southern Europe, during the 20th century.
The common Catholic matrix, the authoritarian past and the intense cultural relations of the three countries (Italy, Spain and Portugal) makes an interesting case study within the framework of the history of European circulation of ideas.
The transnational nature of sport can provide the perspective from which to analyse the political and social past of Southern Europe, allowing us to highlight even the most contradictory facets about the relationship between the masses, leisure and the State.
Scholars from the University of Bologna, of the European University of Madrid and representatives from British and Portuguese universities were invited to attend the conference and discuss this questions at length, aiming at analysing the similarities and differences between the various cases; they will also discuss the role of arts and social politics in order to understand if an idea of sport beyond national borders was also present. In this way, it will be possible to overcome the traditional interpretation of sport as an instrument at nations’ service, it will instead be considered, an important element in the chain of relations between the three countries under study.
This moment of knowledge sharing is open to who want to participate and present papers related with this thematic.
