Dear list members,

a colleague here at the University of Vienna asked me to forward this 
announcement to you. In case you are interested, please do not wait too 
long, since they work under a somewhat tight schedule. Please do not reply 
to the list or to me, but rather contact Dr. Manzenreiter directly. Thank you.



We are looking for another two chapters of up to 6,500 words on football 
in Korea. We particularly welcome contributions on gender or any other
aspect characterising the globalising world of the 21st century, i.e.
the floating relationships between centres and peripheries; labour
migration; international sport finance; the role of transnational media
industries and multinational corporate sponsorship; regionalism and
nationalism; commercialism etc.

Football Goes East: The People's Game in China, Japan and Korea

The edited volume consists of multi- and interdisciplinary studies on
social, cultural, political and economic dimensions of the world sport
football in contemporary China, Japan and Korea. The comparative
collection is designed to contribute to the theoretical discourses on
the sociology and globalisation of sport and to generate empirical
knowledge about the multi-facetted phenomenon of football in distinctive
local cultures. It will consider the impact of globalisation on sport as
well as the role of sports in globalisation processes. As such, the book
delivers a critical assessment of the tensions between the social,
political and economic determinants of sport and leisure cultures in
different non-western social formations.

Please send submission proposals and inquiries directly to the editor.
As time is short, we can only consider contributions close to
