Two years ago my colleague Liz Strom and I gave a paper at Hofstra's conference on the 50th anniversary of the New York Mets. Our paper was on the greening of baseball. It got a bit of attention and certainly was one of the more unique contributions to the conference.
Now, Soccer is taking the stage at Hofstra. The conference is called Soccer as the Beautiful Game: Football's Artistry, Identity, and Politics. It will be held on our campus on April 10-12 of 2014. You can read about the conference here. Abstracts are due December 15th.
I'll be presenting a paper with my students on sustainability initiatives in the professional soccer community in the U.S.
